The Audsley brothers were designers that worked together in Liverpool during the 19th century. They produced a myriad of exotic designs for a diverse range of objects - from stained glass windows and pattern books to musical instruments.

This intriguing exhibition revisits their influential designs and architectural achievements, including the celebrated interior of Princes Road synagogue. Unusual items on display include an ornate Egyptian-style upright piano and a silver brooch decorated with dragons and thistles, set with quartz, citrine and amethyst.
