Downstairs, I spent more time than I have previously admiring the astonishing range and depth of the Glaisher collection of ceramics (Glaisher was a mathematician and fellow of Trinity).A 13th. century man from a ridge tile:-
Mid 17th. century lettering on an earthenware bottle:-
Lettering on a 1643 jug:-
The Voyage to the Moon (c.1740):-
Glaisher had such a good eye and such an astonishing collection that the Fitzwilliam built a gallery specifically in order to house it.
