Horace Walpole’s Strawberry Hill Collection was initially developed by the Lewis Walpole to support research for the exhibition Horace Walpole’s Strawberry Hill and for the renovation of the house itself, undertaken by the Strawberry Hill Trust. Dispersed since the famous sale in 1842, Walpole's collection was one of the most significant in eighteenth-century Britain, numbering several thousand items. This database encompasses the entire range of art and artifacts from Walpole's collections, including all items whose location is currently known and those as yet untraced but known through a variety of historical records. This information is now made available for public access.  The database is an ongoing project: the Library will continue to add and enhance records as further discoveries are made. Queries and comments are invited.

Support for the database and website has been generously provided by
The Samuel H. Kress Foundation.
