The Dorian Rae Collection is more about artifacts than art. In fact, paintings by European masters are is short supply here. Instead, the one-and-a-half storey space is filled with tribal art and antiques from Asia, Africa, and the Americas. Jewelry, textiles, pottery, sculpture, masks, and furniture take centre stage.
Fabulous collection of textiles
Textile fans will find this a delightful place to browse. Finely crafted garments from around the world are available, many well suited for hanging as decor items. Other textile offerings include quilts and pieces that are great alternatives to standard tablecloths.
Not necessarily pricey
Don't let the "antique" and "artifact" labels scare you. Many items, such as pillow cases made from sari fabrics, are reasonably priced, as are many of the jewelry pieces. The staff is knowledgeable in the history and use of each item, making any visit to Dorian Rae an educational experience.
