The Josephine Mercy Heathcote Gallery contains a selection of English furniture, decorative objects, sculpture, and paintings dating to the second half of the eighteenth and into the nineteenth century. Hard to miss is the monumental mirror with matching table made for Croome Court, Worcestershire, after designs by the preeminent Neoclassical architect Robert Adam.
Marble busts by Joseph Nollekens, the celebrated British portrait sculptor of the period, are on display, as are examples of basalt and jasper ware executed by the well-known pottery manufactory established by Joshua Wedgwood. Tableware and presentation silver created by Paul Storr and other London silversmiths are exhibited in several wall cases.
