They show some of a group of Art Deco artefacts from the collection of James Bellchambers. The pieces were purchased from the antiques trade in Totnes, Devon, during the last ten years or so.
Mr Bellchambers is a furniture conservator who has worked on National Trust projects throughout south-west England. He was involved with opening Coleton Fishacre to the public and has previously lent items for display there.
He has now very generously decided to donate these pieces to Coleton Fishacre.
Some of the objects may go on display quite soon. It is being investigated whether further areas of the house can be opened up to the public, and some more of these objects will be shown when that has been achieved.
