Object of the Month
December's Object of the Month is a pottery mould for making sweetmeats, dating from the Jacobean-Stuart period (1600-1700). Sweetmeat was a general term for any type of sweet sugary food. By the Tudor and Stuart periods this included candied fruit, gingerbread, marchpane (marzipan) and pastries.
You can see the sweetmeat on display in the museum until January or read more about it here
