Three Wise Men…

The nativity is a story that’s been being told in one form or another since 1223, so on day eleven we bring you the three wise men…we’re not sure what happened to the rest of the nativity but unfortunately they never made it to the Museum! These three pieces are made from plastic which places them most likely in the mid to late 20th Century.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…

With both the snow and Santa’s arrival at the Museum The Collections Team are starting to get pretty excited about Christmas so we thought, as an advent treat, in the run up to the big day we’d share with you some festive offerings  from the Beamish Collection.

As many of us are starting to think about putting up our Christmas tree, these delightful mid-20th Century glass baubles seemed the perfect thing to bring you on day one of advent! We love the colours and classic vintage shapes.
