One of the things I love about working in museums is the opportunity to take a look at some of the more intriguing and unusual objects in their collections. At the Royal Pavilion & Museums Trust, we are lucky enough to have the Willett Collection of Popular Pottery in our collections. The collection is an exploration of the social history of Britain through its pottery and ceramics. Some of this collection can be seen by the public Brighton Museum & Art Gallery. This display includes some of the more irreverent pieces in the Willett Collection. One of these unusual items, a stirrup cup in the shape of a potato, has inspired my recent piece on the Brighton Museums website. The article can be read on their website here.
