Agricultural and Horticultural seed measures

I am a retired MD of a retailer who packaged and sold a large quantity of flower and veg seeds to the general public.
The business is now closed, but I have quite a collection of seed measures, from half bushel to 1/4 pint, and flower seed measures from Blake and MacKenzie and Schulke.
I feel these should be in a museum or someplace where they will be appreciated and kept.
I would be grateful for any advice and recommendations forum members may have as to where best to go from here.

I am sure a museum would welcome these.
Have you tried the Garden Museum https://gardenmuseum.org.uk/
or perhaps the Museum of English Rural Life https://merl.reading.ac.uk/

Interested to learn whether you still have your seed measures. I am trying to buy some Blake and Mackenzie seed measures and would be interested if they are still available.

I contacted the original poster and unfortunately it seems that the seed measures have recently been donated to E W Kings collection. Sorry!
