Rasps, Possets, and Blackjacks: Spirits & Smoking in the 18th Century
Local collector, Kevin Kerchner, will be sharing tales and examples from his extensive collection of 18th century drinking and smoking items.
Come and explore an earlier time in which the imbibing of alcohol and use of tobacco were a fundamental part of society. Learn about the origins and use of unusual drinking objects such as posset pots and puzzle jugs as well as unique smoking items like rasps and early lighters. And try your skills at identifying “what is it?” items.
