Welcome to the website for the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology’s Wanamaker Bronze Collection. This collection is made up of 454 bronze reproductions of objects primarily from Pompeii and Herculaneum, ranging from small tools to life-size statues and furniture. John Wanamaker (1838–1922), the Philadelphia department store magnate and longtime member of the Museum’s Board of Managers, purchased these bronzes from J. Chiurazzi & Fils for the museum in 1904. Due to their status as reproductions, only a handful of these bronzes are on display. They are presented here in a more complete fashion. On this website, you will find information about the collection’s history; background on the Pompeiian house and the archaeological contexts of the originals; the Wanamaker Bronzes categorized by object type; featured groups of bronzes; bibliography; and contact information, including forms to request objects for class use or individual research.
