HOUSEWARES : Tupperware Gets a Seal of Approval and Place of Honor

January 29, 1994|From Associated Press

LONDON — The collections of the Victoria and Albert Museum include the world's greatest collection of Constable's paintings, other fine and applied art--and plastic Tupperware housewares.

Britain's renowned National Museum of Art and Design recently acquired several Tupperware items for its decorative arts collection. Among them is a prototype bowl, "Zuppa a Noci," an experimental design not intended for production or sale. The bowl was also acquired by the Metropolitan Museum of New York.

The Brooklyn Museum and the Cooper-Hewitt, the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of Design in New York, have also recently added Tupperware designs to their collections.
