1856 time-capsule

1856 kitchen design.Kansas City, Missouri “Steamship Arabia Museum” is an 1856 time-capsule from a 171 ft x 29 ft sunken ship with a storehouse of new 1856 goods on their way to market for Western settlements. A must see, and a must-see-again museum! This kitchen display was one of the most dramatic kitchen exhibits we’ve seen in a museum to date — and all items from 1856. The exhibit of 1856 kitchen items was extensive: rows of tea kettles, pots, pans, dishes, elegant china, silver, utensils, serving trays, pickles, brandied cherries–all original, never used, and all on their way to market.
