Walter Cook collection at Te Papa

Wellington collector Walter Cook donated his large collection of British and European ceramics and other decorative arts to the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa in Wellington. The pieces date from between 1870 and 1970. Here, people admire some ceramics at the opening of the exhibition at Te Papa in 1995. Another exhibition based on Cook's collection was mounted in 2012.
