Down here at the vaults the theme for our current exhibition is Antique and Contemporary Tea Sets. In the cabinets at the entrance to the vaults you will find on display tea and coffee items ranging from the old and highly decorative to the sleek and modern.
There is no denying that, here in the UK, we love our tea and
it is something the rest of the world sees as a very British habit.

Have you heard about the bird?

Down here at the vaults we have many things which are useful in the home but sometimes we offer things which have been made purely for decorative purposes.
Among these types of items, some of the most well loved, are the animal figurines.
Most often these will be realistically modelled wild birds and popular domestic animals such as dogs and horses.
