Staffordshire Hoard inspired merchandise - available now

  • 18 October 2010

We've put together an exclusive range of whisky tumblers, coasters and notecards inspired by the Staffordshire Hoard, which we helped save for the West Midlands earlier this year.

We teamed up with writer and historian Marina Warner to create these beautiful items so that everyone can have a part of the Hoard in their home. Captivated by the mystery behind the Hoard, she has written an evocative creative text, excerpts of which are printed onto the objects.

Marina Warner said: “The imagination interests me, its patterns and imagery, its silences and its shouts; I like to explore what gets into it and lodges there, hence my research into myths and fairy tales.”

Items available:

• Dimple based tumbler with beautifully etched extracts from Marina Warner’s evocative prose

• High quality felt backed melamine coasters

• A box set of eight notecards and envelopes illustrated with the prose in full

All proceeds go towards helping us bring inspiring artworks and historic objects to museums across the UK.
