This collection has 166 items online
Within the collection at Avebury Manor are four paintings: two landscapes – one a contemporary view of the Avebury Stones, the other a pastiche of an Italian classical landscape – and two 17th-century Roman still life scenes. There is also a copy of William Stukeley’s 1740 book entitled ‘Stonehenge – a Temple Restored to the British Druids’, and an 18th-century Dutch mirror with an exquisitely embroidered raised work border inspired by late 17th-century designs but crafted c.1916. In the grounds of the manor are a large number of outdoor stone features and decorations; pineapple and ball finials, urns and obelisks all feature in the grounds of the manor.
