Trappings of Trade

Things to do
Osterley Park House’s new display, ‘Trappings of Trade’, is part of UCL’s ‘East India Company at Home’ project, which explores the history of the East India trading company and how it influenced the country houses of Britain, including Osterley, which was once owned by the director of the company, Francis Child the Elder. Spread across five rooms is a display of the porcelain, lacquer furniture and fabrics collected over the two centuries that the East India Company was active. A sixth room has been transformed to resemble the interior of a ship for children to explore.
