At the heart of Redbridge Museum is a unique collection of over 7000 objects, oral history and film. Once a week we will be selecting one object from Redbridge Museum’s collection to share with you online.
This week we mark the forty day period of Lent, which comes before Easter in the Christian Calendar. Lent is marked by fasting and is a time of reflection and preparation before the celebrations of Easter. During Lent it is common for believers to give up a favourite food or confectionary. Our Object of the Week is something that might be given up for Lent, chocolate!
This 1920s chocolate box from makers Cadbury’s (now Cadbury) was first produced in 1927 and continued to be produced until1932. Inside it offered consumers an assortment of new chocolate centres in a well-balanced variety.
