Curiosities from the Museum: Mystery Parchment

Over the years at the Wenatchee Valley Museum, there have been some odd and strange things that have been donated to the collection. While currently there is a screening process and procedures in place for donating items, this wasn’t always the case. We occasionally find oddities lying around for years gone by with little or no explanations.

More recently, this old piece of parchment with a large wax seal was found in the collection with no information linked to it. The place of origin, date, and language are all unknown so for now we can only speculate. It could be an important governmental document or someone’s very detailed shopping list.
