Edith Williams’ Trousseau Online Exhibition

The Edith Williams collection is very fragile and vulnerable to light, so is not able to be on display very often. We're delighted to now have digital 3D scans of Edith Williams' trousseau from the late 19th century, which are featured in this online exhibition thanks to Cornwall Museums Partnership and Art Fund.
