Market Lavington Museum

Bottles and Bowls


Bottles, made of glass, are amazing survivors. Museums like ours at Market Lavington are almost certain to have collections of bottles from the past. They can form a good basis for a display, often falling into that category which visitors loved of, ‘Oh I remember those’.

Along with bottles, some corner shelves in our kitchen room also contain tins, bowls and other items.

Items here like the knife polisher and cheese dish you may recognise from other blog entries.

There are all sorts of other little items there – including a pastry cutter and a device for pushing the marble in those old fizzy drink bottles. There are obviously graters and a pestle and mortar.

But our aim. here, is just to give an idea of one little corner in one of our display rooms.
