Edinburgh Museums and Galleries is home to some of Scotland’s most important, and stunning, decorative art. At the Museum of Edinburgh you will find Scottish pottery, silver and glassware and at Lauriston Castle, you can see beautiful and useful objects carefully arranged within an interior designed by William Robert Reid the early 20th century.

The Museum of Edinburgh houses spectacular collections of decorative art which reveal a rich history of Scottish craftsmanship. This includes beautifully cut and engraved glass and intricately made silver from Edinburgh and Canongate, long case clocks made in Edinburgh, as well as displays of Scottish pottery including the earliest known marked piece of Scottish stoneware and Scottish porcelain dating from the 1760s.
