This is a relatively new collection area of focus for the Museum. Most of the pieces acquired are from the period of the 18th Century to the 20th Century, with a predominance of examples from Modern schools and periods such as Art Nouveau, Bauhaus, and Vienna Werkstate.

There are works by artists such as: Archibald Knox, Charles Robert Ashbee, Josef Hoffmann, Joseph Maria Albrich, Louis Comfort Tiffany, Henry Van de Velde, Peter Behrens, Maurice Dufrène, Hugo Leven, and Marcel Wolfers.

The collection also contains a number of fine examples from the 18th-Century workshops of Sèvres and Meissen.
