Items from a Traditional Eighteenth & Nineteenth Century Kitchen These items are nearly all in the collection of Nº 1 Royal Crescent Museum in Bath. They were collected by Hugh Roberts and donated to the Museum. Some of the items bear a resemblance to those used in our kitchens today. However Box irons were filled with coals and must have been very heavy and cumbersome unlike our modern irons.

The cabinetry is a mix of stock IKEA boxes and custom doors. Salvaged from a nunnery, the table seats eight; its top was wrapped in stainless steel so it could serve as extra prep space.
