The Arden Craft Shop Museum recently received a donation of the top of the stile sign and it joins two other similar objects already in the collection. The latest sign was found by the donor on their leasehold, but they did not have any specific information on its origins. We now have three stile signs and would be delighted to know additional information about any of them.
The first two signs were “found in collection,” so we do not have any specific information on their donors or origins. The first is in very fragile condition, appears to be of wood which has been stained brown. The remnants of carved scroll work remain on the left side and the right side is missing.
The Museum is open Sunday afternoons from 1-3 & Wednesday evenings from 7:30 to 9.
