In conjunction with the exhibition Turkmen Jewelry from the Collection of Marshall and Marilyn R. Wolf (on view October 9, 2012, through February 24, 2013), Marshall and Marilyn R. Wolf discuss their collecting practices and connection to The Metropolitan Museum of Art. From the first few pieces that grew into a large collection of traditional Turkmen jewelry, the couple's appreciation for the jewelry has followed them for decades and allowed them to develop unique insights into the practice of collecting.
The exhibition is made possible by the Hagop Kevorkian Fund.

This small dish was probably a saucer for a handleless cup, part of a larger tea set. Its green opalescent glass might have been meant to imitate green jade, a popular medium for luxury objects of this period.
