Decorative Arts

Decorative arts objects at Hill-Stead reflect the Popes’ extensive travels and love of collecting from many cultures. An eclectic mix of Asian and European ceramics, English and French silver tea pots and tea sets, English and French boxes, American, English, French and Swiss clocks all reinforce the color and historical themes established by the paintings and furnishings.
