Bertram House

This early 19th century Georgian House is another house museum with the opulence of a bygone era. Likewise filled with treasures such as Georgian furniture, porcelain and silver, it also boasts a rare Clementi piano and a 200-year-old Grecian harp.

Built in the style known locally as late Georgian, it was extensively restored during 1983 and 1984 and furnished to give an impression of life in a well-to-do English home during the early years of the British occupation some 200 years ago.

Although the collection consists mainly of English porcelain, it includes fine examples of Chinese export porcelain. It also includes a superb collection of English Furniture comprising 58 Georgian pieces.

Most of the furniture dates from the latter half of the 18th century. There are earlier pieces and in some cases later ones, but these are in keeping with the prevailing style of the house.
