Science and technology will be represented through some very unusual timepieces. The electric regulator clock from 1924 designed by Alexander Steuart of Edinburgh was extremely accurate and used to set the time on other clocks.
Also on display is a tea kettle by Ebenezer Oliphant from 1752-3 which is one of only two known to have been made by him. Oliphant was one of the most accomplished Scottish goldsmith’s of the 18th century.
Please note that the display will be temporarily closed from 2-10 October 2018. We apologise for any inconvenience.
