Both Charles and Caroline are passionate collectors of bronze sculptures. With her background in Japanese works of Art Caroline favours animalier bronzes by Genryusai Seiya while Charles has a penchant for bronze figural pieces, especially fishermen, farmers and craftsmen and bronze groups of parents with children. He also buys monumental bronze Japanese tigers. European bronzes are represented with pieces from Russia, France and Austria. There are whimsical dancers and classical figures, cold painted animals and imposing ‘renaissance’ knights.
