Decorative art

The decorative art collection contains ceramics, glass, furniture, costume and textiles, silver and contemporary craft. It also includes one of the most extensive collections of the historically important Plymouth and Bristol porcelain and a wide selection from other British and European factories and makers, including the work of Dorothy Doughty, Bernard Moore and the Martin Brothers.

A selection of items from the decorative art collections are displayed in our refurbished Atrium Gallery and The China Connection. The museum is still actively collecting decorative art and you can see some of our new acquisitions.

‘Art Bites’ tours of highlighting different aspects of our decorative art collection take place on Wednesdays regularly throughout the year. Go to our art bites page to find out more.
