The Witch Bottle

£50.00

Are the witches in your life getting you down?

Are you:

  • Tripping over black cats?
  • Constantly unloading cauldrons from the dishwasher?
  • Forced to use a broomstick instead of a hoover?

Sounds like you need to get yourself a witch bottle.

Witch bottles like me do all the hard work. I’m filled with thread and hair which tempts those pesky witches inside and traps them there forever. East Anglia is famed for its witch bottles, so if you adopt me, you’ll be in good company.

I am extremely fragile due to my age, but I’m still going strong. Adopt me today and support the Museum to care for objects just like me.
