As well as works by celebrated ceramicists such as Ernest Chaplet, Théodore Deck and Pierre-Adrien Dalplayrat, the gallery also deals in furniture and will be showing a rare Franco-Indian rosewood colonial dining suite of 13 pieces comprising a sideboard, two-part cabinet, table and chairs.

This has come from India from the residence of Edmond Gaudart (1859-1942) who was the colonial administrator in Pondicherry. It was made in the early-20th century by local craftsmen trained at the Pondicherry School of Arts and Crafts.

Gaudart had a long career in the colonies before he retired in 1910, holding various different positions including governor of Senegal and Dahomey and president of the supervisory committee of the Pondicherry library, the French India archives and the committee for the local organisation of French India.
