The patina on them is lovely and the contents...
Cutlery and lots of it. Not silver, just plain old stainless steel. I think the order and repetition of the contents appeals to me and the discoloured lining. Imagine entertaining with all this.

Thought I would share some of my photos with you - these are of all the boxes held in the attic, which are beautiful even before we looked inside them.
Unfortunately the lighting was not good and these were only taken with my phone, so the pictures of the insides are a bit blurry, but here a a few of the better ones.
Beautiful patchwork silk pocket above, and this beautiful glove below.
Another section of the museum holds a collection enclosed in cupboards and lots of draws - this was such a fascinating room for me, as an avid collector of anything and everything, I could happily have lived in it for a few days. Again I had issues with the camera, but am hopeful for another visit when the museum reopens.
The selection of spectacles was magnificent - I can't wait to go back!
