Item Provenance & History

Bertram Wodehouse Currie (d.1896), at either Minley Manor, Farnborough, Surrey, or 1 Richmond Terrace, London, and by descent.

The Currie Collection was formed by Bertram Currie between 1877-1890. Divided between his four houses, Minley Manor, Coombe Warren, Bertram Wodehouse and Number 1 Richmond Terrace - where Gladstone resided following the fall of his second administration - this eclectic collection embraced everything from Dresden porcelain, English portraits and clocks, and Italian old masters, to the French Decorative Arts of the eighteenth century. Bought at such great sales as Hamilton Place in 1882 and Blenheim Palace in 1886, as the privately printed 1909 catalogues of Coombe Warren and Richmond Terrace reveal, Currie's taste ranged from Louis XIV and Louis XVI 'buhl' to Louis XV ormolu-mounted porcelain and bronzes d'ameublement.
