Decorative Arts

Furniture, pottery, silverware, glass, fine china, toys... The extremely varied objects included in the Decorative Arts collection document the material environment within which Montrealers, Quebeckers and Canadians lived in centuries past.

Emphasis is on objects that effectively illustrate the country and its evolution from a largely rural colonial community to the increasingly urbanized and industrialized society of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
