Charles Dickens Collections

The museum service runs the Charles Dickens Birthplace Museum and has a number of items specifically relating to the Dickens family. A dedicated collection of Regency period furniture, ceramics, glass and prints furnishes the Birthplace Museum to recreate the home of John and Elizabeth Dickens. There are a few items of personalia once owned by Charles Dickens himself such as waistcoat buttons, a lock of his hair and the couch on which he died. The service owns a number of illustrations to his novels as well as portraits of Charles and his family. There are also a few original manuscript letters by Charles in the collection.
