There are many and varied categories of decorative art. Many art galleries and museums around the world show a wide variety of decorative arts amongst their gallery collections.
Stately homes and mansions open to the public also have many examples of decorative art on show, usually in-situ so that you can see how they might have been arranged, housed or used at that time.
I have arranged some sub-pages here for various categories of the decorative arts:
- cards (greeting cards, postcards)
- carvings (wood, stone)
- ceramics (mosaics & tiles)
- furniture & furnishings (homewares & interiors)
- lacquerware (Asian, Russian)
- pottery & porcelain; and
