Best of Last Week- October 23-27

There is a story behind every artifact. Some stories reveal practical solutions to everyday life, such as repair marks in Owasco pottery and Wildroot tonic bottles for male grooming. Other objects give us a glimpse into home furnishings trends, like a transfer-printed elephant and colorful, shell-edged rims. If we are lucky, some discoveries mark a major historic event. A Canadian Assembly handstamp was just one of many charred artifacts recovered from an 1849 riot fire of the Parliament building. Click the images below to learn more about our featured posts.
