During the month of May we’re after photos of your mantelpiece for Bristol At Home. The project is all about collecting your pictures so that future generations can get a glimpse into how we live in Bristol today.
Check out #BristolAtHome on Twitter and tweet us your pics – they could become part of Bristol Museums, Galleries & Archives’ collections. And of course, don’t forget to follow Blaise Castle House Museum!

To inspire you, here are a few items from our collections which might have graced the mantelpieces of the past:
This lovely porcelain spaniel is one of a pair.
This is a pair of orphans from the Muller home which is now City of Bristol College. We have a bonnet just like this one in the collection!
This rabbit was made by Bristol pottery firm Pountney and is on display at M Shed.
