Sigmund Freud began collecting artworks and antiquities in the late 19th century and it soon became his obsession. Walking into his study today at 20 Maresfield Gardens, this collection is an extraordinary sight. Over 2000 antiquities are crammed into cases and on table tops, from Ancient Egypt, Greece and the Roman Empire, from China, Japan, North America, Europe and beyond.

This guide to Freud's collection of antiquities highlights some of his most beautiful and significant objects. Many of these statuettes, amulets and vases stood on the shelves of Freud's study for decades and inspired some of his most famous theories. This guide tells the story of those objects: dating from 2000 BC to the 20th century, these objects, large and small, have survived burial and disinterment, world travel and world wars, to become Sigmund Freud's most treasured possessions.
