More Objects Need Adopting!

Published: Friday, 6th October 2017

More objects are available for adoption, including courtroom marmalade, a wind up seal and a hat box!

Oxbridge Marmalade Evidence

Thanks to your help, our Adopt an Object campaign has been a massive success. 34 objects (at the time of writing this) have already been adopted since we launched the campaign in July and we have now added several more from different parts of the collection.

In the Museum, there are extensive Frank Cooper related objects and some of these will now be available to adopt. This includes a jar of marmalade which was used as courtroom evidence when Cooper’s sued a rival company called ‘Oxbridge’ claiming that the name was an attack on their own Oxford branding.

We are also adding items relating to Morrells Brewery and the department store Capes. Two great, Oxford names no longer around.
