The Wallace Collection,
Several diverse groups of decorative art objects are included within this area of the Collection. They include gold boxes and goldsmiths’ work, silver and jewellery
Most of the gold boxes in the Wallace Collection were made in Paris during the eighteenth century and most were used to contain snuff. Of exquisite workmanship, they share the elaborate richness of the larger-scale French eighteenth-century art in the Collection, but on an intimate and jewel-like scale.
Free Admission including temporary exhibitions. Open daily from 10am - 5pm.
The Wallace Collection is open to the public on Public Holidays except 24-26 December.
