Antiques & Bygones

We look at antiques and memorabilia from a bygone age. Each month, a volunteer in the group does some research on a subject, gives a short talk and if we can, we each bring relevant objects. It is interesting to find out about the social background and use of bygones such as writing materials, time-keeping and kitchenalia. Subjects can range from coins and ceramics to jewellery, chairs and maps. Interesting memories are triggered and by rummaging in cupboards and drawers, we often find objects we had forgotten about. We also have an annual visit to a museum, antiques fair, stately home or auction rooms followed by a pub lunch.
