New Display Cabinet

We are delighted to have a new display cabinet at Market Lavington Museum. What a great way to celebrate our Silver Jubilee year.

The new cabinet will allow a few more of our seven thousand hidden treasures to go on display. For the jubilee year we will have a shelf devoted to feminine items including fans and another with items of a more masculine nature. A third shelf will feature items that belonged to the Baker family. John Baker was a tin smith in the nineteenth century and a descendant of his recently left a legacy to the museum. Another shelf contains items connected with various businesses along The High Street (and its continuation of Church Street). There are artefacts from, amongst others, the butcher, the cobbler, the ironmonger and even the insurance agent.

Can you add anything to this or do you want to know more?
