Nuffield Place, Oxfordshire
This collection has 3,575 items online
The collection is indigenous to its original setting and is largely complete. It reflects the lives lived by the Nuffields at Nuffield Place. It is both modest and personal, and varies widely from the contents of Lord Nuffield’s tool cupboard in his bedroom to Royal Worcester porcelain, made and presented to him from the town of his birth. There is nothing grandiose. The reproduction furniture, contemporary domestic equipment and technology, memorabilia and gifts embody the attractive and comfortable home of William and Elizabeth Morris who believed in hard work and helping others. Accounts, books and letters give us an insight into the very private life of a couple who also enjoyed a national profile.
