The collection was regarded and recognised as academically important, a number of bequests of both decorative and fine arts from the collection have been accepted by museums includingThe British Museum and the Ashmolean.
The business of Felix Edward Pratt (1813-1894) and Richard Pratt was founded. The company became an important manufacturer of domestic ware of terracotta and transfer printed earthenware.
F&R Pratt created a large range of elegant and well designed Neo Classical style objects.
Nineteenth century European designers and manufacturers often used archaeological discoveries. The simple lines and patterns of ancient Greek and Roman pottery were seen in various design incarnations and applications throughout the Decorative Arts of the 18th and 19th century.
