St Dwynwen's Day is celebrated in Wales on 25 January and commemorates the patron saint of friendship and love. This talk will explore some of the objects in our collection which were given as tokens and symbols of love, from the famous love spoon, to lesser known romantic objects, such as knitting sheaths and staybusks. These tokens were cherished objects of ordinary people, who’s stories are so often hidden from history. Through the beautifully carved symbols and motifs of these love tokens, we can learn a little about their hopes and desires and gain a glimpse into their very own love stories.
