Tea glass, which was in personal use of V.I. Lenin during his stay in Switzerland in 1916-1917.
Western Europe, Switzerland.
Not later than 1916.
At the end of December 1951, the Museum received a casket with five Lenin’s household items from the Institute of Marxism-Leninism under the Central Committee of the CPSU. Titus Kemmerer’s son Adolf confirmed in writing that these things “belonged to Mr. Vladimir Ilyich Lenin and his wife during their stay in Zurich in 1916-1917 and were in their use”.
A simple faceted glass, a wire glass-holder, a tea strainer, bone knives, an inkwell – this is practically all that remained of the household items of professional revolutionaries in emigration.
