Lady Dry Collection
Lady Clara Dry was the wife of Tasmanian politician Sir Richard Dry (1815-1869). The Lady Dry collection is a diverse and idiosyncratic selection of material collected by her while travelling in Europe and the Middle East. It includes Middle Eastern textiles and religious artefacts, Italian ceramics and jewellery, Neapolitan painted fan leafs, a model of a Norwegian stave church and a number of small ancient Egyptian artefacts amongst other things.
