Overview

A small but rich collection of pieces of furniture, including clocks. These were used for practical and decorative purposes mainly in the Bank's Parlours - the area in which the Bank's senior officials have their offices and in which policy is decided. The earliest piece of furniture known to have been in use in the Bank is the Great Iron Chest, which is displayed in the museum. The architect, Sir John Soane (1753-1837) designed furniture for the Bank including a set of chairs for the Governor's room.
