FEATURED WEB PAGE: 1799 PETER KEMPSON CALENDAR MEDAL

This week's featured web page is from the Birmingham Museum
& Art Gallery, featuring a calendar medal designed by Peter
Kempson.

"This calendar medal for 1799 was designed to be carried in
the pocket or purse and is a kind of forerunner of the modern
pocket diary. The obverse gives the date of every Sunday in
the year, plus some key dates from the Christian calendar.
On the reverse are the dates of the new and full moons, the
law terms and certain important anniversaries."
