A few of my favourite things

This Spring, an exciting new collaboration between Parliament’s Curator’s Office and the Restoration and Renewal Team gets underway. The Documentation Team will go through the records we hold on all 11,000 Historic Collection (Furniture and Decorative Art) items and 9,000 works of art, as well as inspecting the items in situ around the Estate.

This project is expected to last around two years. It will be a crucial part of our planning in these early stages and will ensure that the collections catalogue is up-to-date.

Meanwhile, we asked some of the team to share their favourite items from our heritage collections.
