Cannon Hall Museum in Barnsley is now displaying three bronze sculptures by a former resident of the building in its collection of fine and decorative arts.
The sculptures, made by artist Gertrude Spencer-Stanhope in the 19th Century, were accepted by the government in place of tax and were then allocated to Barnsley Council for display at the museum.
Ms Spencer-Stanhope was the eldest of the 11 children of Sir Walter Spencer-Stanhope, who owned Cannon Hall from 1873 to 1911. She went on to exhibit her sculptures and paintings at provincial and London galleries.
A Barnsley Council spokesperson said: "We are so pleased that these bronzes have come to Cannon Hall. They are beautiful works of art in their own right, and the close connection with the family who lived here makes them even more interesting."
Two sculptures are of ancient Greek figures Pan, a god, and Orpheus, a musician and poet, playing the lyre and the other is of a naked woman.
