BROWSE DECORATIVE ARTS AND DESIGN COLLECTION

The Brooks’ decorative arts and design collection includes more than 2,000 European and American pieces of ceramics, glass, furniture, and metalwork. The majority of these objects are English, with large holdings of sterling silver, 19th-century lustreware, and 18th-century furniture. Notable objects include Paul Storr silver, a 14th-century Spanish processional cross, French and Italian Renaissance ceramics, and a late 15th-century German stained glass panel. American works date largely to the mid-18th to late 19th century and include silver, furniture, and glass. Among the highlights are a Townsend family long-case clock, a Benjamin Frothingham high chest of drawers, a Frank Lloyd Wright chair, a Tennessee sugar chest sideboard, and a pair of silver Tiffany ewers.
