The Paston Treasure is one of the most important depictions of a schatzkammer (cabinet of treasures) in the history of British collecting.
It is a record of the magnificent collections once held at Oxnead Hall in Norfolk, home of the Paston family.
From the Dutch school, it was probably painted between 1666-69.
As well as being gorgeous to look at, the painting’s importance lies in the international scope and interest of the objects portrayed.
