Cute Finds

While rehousing (organizing and repacking) collections from Baltimore this week, curators came across these children’s belongings that were excavated in 1980 in preparation for the construction of the new Federal Reserve Bank office building. The artifacts, excavated by Mid-Atlantic Archaeological Research, Inc., were found in a feature that dates to the mid 19th century. The teacup is particularly interesting to the collections staff because they first came across a similar cup last summer in a collection from Queen Anne’s County and never expected to find another like it, and then – voila!

Child’s metal ring, thimble and toy teacup.
