Created in 1730s, hampers sustained Londoners on journeys from Piccadilly coaching inns to country estates.  Contents: game pies, fresh bread, butter, ‘scotched’ eggs, cheese, hothouse fruit, fruit cake, water, beer & hock. Over 300 years, explorers have taken hampers all over the globe – Mt Everest, the Nile, the Arctic Ocean.  Portable pleasure at a picnic or battlefield.  Morale-boosting hampers have been sent to troops since 1815
