Madeleine’s book of board talk
Madeleine Neave, curator of The Antique Breadboard Museum, has published a book describing her extensive collection of boards, butter knives and butter churners.
It also includes memories of her late mother Rosslyn, a Portobello Road dealer and restorer. She started the collection after growing up on a farm, milking cows and making butter by hand.
In the new book, Madeleine tracks the history of decorative ‘bread-platters’ from their Victorian origins to the present. It features 100 colour images and is available for £16.
Visitors to the Putney museum are served cream teas on a board their choice and may book a visit with details via the website below.
