The collection of Archaic Chinese bronzes at Compton Verney is a Designated Collection of national importance.

The 79 Archaic Chinese bronzes from the Shang, Zhou and Han Dynasties (1500-206 BC), with additional, later, bronze-shaped objects made from ceramic and cloisonné, make up an important collection. These objects, associated with ancestor worship, are the chief testimony to the earliest artistic and technological achievements of the Chinese. The earliest pottery vessel in the collection dates back to the Neolithic period (4500-2000 BC).

Compton Verney is also home to a growing collection of nationally and internationally significant art from around the world. The collections include paintings from Naples (1600-1800), Northern European, British Portraits, Chinese, British Folk Art and the Marx Lambert Collection.
