In the Horniman

We work at the Horniman Museum and Gardens' stores and come across all manner of interesting, unusual and fascinating finds.
Here we share a few we like with you, but there are lots more listed on our website.


At the moment, we're mainly working on a collections review project: Collections People Stories, reviewing our Anthropology collections. You can learn more about all the collections at the Horniman on our website.

NB: we're not responsible for others reblogging or writing about our objects, but we hope you like these objects as much as we do.

Hear more about our projects on twitter @HornimanReviews.

Recently we have been looking at sherbet spoons and have found these lovely examples. Sherbet is traditionally offered to guests during Nowruz, Persian New Year. For the last week people have been celebrating Nowruz all around the world. Nowruz Mubarak!
