A few of our favourite things

Marie Antoinette's Square Piano by Sébastien Erard (1752-1831) at Hatchlands Park, Surrey

Square pianoforte

This beautiful Erard square pianoforte was made in 1786-7 for Queen Marie Antoinette and has been chosen by our Room Guide, Jim, as his favourite instrument in the Cobbe Collection. It was brought to England by William Waldorf Astor in the early 20th century and kept at Hever Castle where it survived a major flood in 1968.

A Courtyard in Venice with a Man and Woman Dancing by the circle of Canaletto

A courtyard in Venice

One of our Room Guides, Inger, picked this little oil painting called A Courtyard in Venice with a Man and Woman Dancing by the circle of Canaletto as her favourite collection item. It hangs in the Drawing Room and dates from the early to mid-18th century. Inger says, ‘This painting shows me, what real life was once like in this lovely Italian city.’

Close view of a caryatid on the chimneypiece in the Saloon at Hatchlands Park, Surrey.

Saloon chimneypiece

Avril chose the caryatid chimneypiece in the Saloon. It was carved in 1758-1760 by the celebrated master sculptor, Michael Rysbrack. The two figures represent Night and Day. On the right-hand side, Night has her eyes closed while Day’s remain open as Aurora, the winged goddess of Dawn, rushes between them.

Our collection

As much of the collection is still privately owned, we are unable to publish full inventory details, but you can explore some of the highlights from the objects we care for on the National Trust Collections website.
