Pockets acknowledgements

This website is a collaborative project with Barbara Burman, Jonathan White and Seth Denbo at the Winchester School of Art, University of Southampton. It forms part of their research project: 'Pockets of history: production and consumption of women's tie-on pockets from c1690 -1914 '. This is ongoing with a grant from the Arts and Humanities Research Council. The V&A is very grateful to Barbara, Jonathan and Seth for the contribution of their research to this site.

A gift in your will

You may not have thought of including a gift to a museum in your will, but the V&A is a charity and legacies form an important source of funding for our work. It is not just the great collectors and the wealthy who leave legacies to the V&A. Legacies of all sizes, large and small, make a real difference to what we can do and your support can help ensure that future generations enjoy the V&A as much as you have.
