The Holburne Museum is delighted to announce it has raised the money to secure the acquisition for its permanent collection of a rare seventeenth-century beadwork basket.
Acquisition of a 17th Century Beadwork Basket
The Holburne Museum campaigned to buy this 17th Century beadwork basket made in England around 1665. It depicts Charles II and Catherine of Braganza next to a castle within a leafy landscape. It reflects the remarkably high standard of British needlework during the 17th century.
