21st Century Showcase - Sheffield Collectable Knives

Posted on by Website Administrator

This showcase can be found in the entrance to the Museum.  It exhibits a changing display of products made by contemporary industrial manufacturers in Sheffield. 

Sheffield has a long tradition of manufacture and engineering excellence and continues to be a centre of industry and innovation today.  Each showcase display will focus on one company which reflects production within the 21st Century city.

From 2013, we have had a changing programme of displays from Sheffield companies which include Dormer, Ernest Wright & Son, Taylors Eye Witness and Thomas Flinn & Co.

The new 21st Century Showcase is now installed and will be displaying items from Sheffield Collectable Knives from Sunday 20th September 2015.

Sheffield Collectable Knives

Sheffield Collectable Knives brings together arguably the City's most illustrious makers, Joseph Rodgers and George Wostenholm.  Today, they offer a range of knives worthy of these famous names proudly made by craftsmen in Sheffield under the guardianship of Egginton Bros Ltd, a family business formed in 1872.
