Object Stories: Time & Tide Advent Calendar

For this week’s #ObjectStories, we’re sharing this festive advent calendar, illustrated by Barbara Allen.⁠

‘This is such a seasonal favourite and another string to the bow of the multi talented Barbara Allen of mid century textile design partnership ‘Bourne & Allen’. ⁠

Not only did she produce the most exquisite textiles for the likes of Heathrow Airport and the Royal Festival Hall, she also worked as an illustrator for the political and literary review magazine Time & Tide.’⁠

#ObjectStories are short and sweet tidbits written by the museum’s Curator Donna Steele. Each fortnight we’ll share another gem from our renowned collection.⁠
