In other museums

If you feel like a Breadboard Tour of England, we can confirm three sites so far!

The Tennyson Collection in Lincolnshire has his wedding board of 1850, more a platter or plaque.

The Victoria and Albert Museum in London has a board and knife commissioned by Henry Cole for his household wares catalogue in 1847.

If you spot any more on your ramblings, do send in details with a photo.


Thanks to the generosity of the Tennyson Collection at the Lincolnshire Archives, I am able to reproduce the board here.
