Implement Seats

There are literally hundreds of beautifully decorated implement seats to be found in Oakham Treasures and no two are alike! As you would expect, many of them are on the 100 or so tractors in the tractor and farm machinery room, but they also adorn the walls throughout the museum to form a fantastic display of colour in memory of farming throughout the last century.

In days gone by implement seats were painted in bright colours as a matter of course, by the manufacturers and distributers, often as a form of advertising.
