Artifact of the Week – bonus – Souvenir egg-timer rooster.

bird 001

This plastic rooster egg-timer was left on the door step of the museum last week.  Made in Great Britain, likely in the late 1950s, the maple leaf and CORNWALL CANADA sticker magically turn this into a Cornwall souvenir.   Perhaps not the most stunning donation the museum has received this year, but certainly one of the kitchiest.
