Decorative Arts

The decorative arts form a large and sumptuous part of the Wallace Collection. The most numerous objects are those of eighteenth-century France and the medieval and Renaissance periods.

Many pieces have fascinating, and sometimes mysterious, stories to tell, from the chest-of-drawers delivered to Louis XV’s bedroom at Versailles to the Bell Shrine of St Mura, which was said to have descended from heaven.
