Collections

Decorative Arts

The decorative arts collection includes a further 340 items, mostly consisting of pieces from the Middlesbrough Pottery with some examples from other regional potteries and glass manufacturers. There is a small collection of pieces from the Bretby and Ault potteries because of their connections with the Linthorpe Pottery.

There is also a collection of nineteenth century Japanese figures or okimono, possibly carved from walrus ivory.
