Jason,

Google "fairy lights".  They look pretty small, too.

Cheers,

Rube.

Dear Jason,
until let say 50 years ago, the trattoria here in Italy was a sort of Bar, more exactly the place where people sit, drink wine, play cards, discuss. In most of them you could also have a dish. Not really a restaurant, but a sort of popular restaurant.
But then  times changes, the Bars and Restaurants pop up everywhere. The trattoria then specialized, now many are just like restaurants, but the cuisine is more of the regional or typical one. You eat more genuine typical foods and more cheaper in trattoria than in restaurants, where the cuisine is more of international type.
But if you are making tourism here be careful, do not relay just on the name, because there are restaurants of very high level that still use the name trattoria.
Kind regards
Giovanni
PS: if you have a bit of dexterity or have a friend that can do it, the mini LED is no doubt the best way, because it is for sure smaller than the commercial devices and two thin wires are not obstructing the vision like the tube of the devices.

The Trattoria where Giovanni and Betty have taken me to numerous times [I always say, "why drive more than 4 min., when such wonderful food is so close?"], always has 5 or 6 types of homemade pasta, and they order 2 or 3, as a pasta course. We also have roast duck or goose [both amazing! But anyone who's ever taken me out for a meal, or been taken out by me for a meal, knows I LOVE roast duck or roast goose!].
A wonderful place to eat.
Thank you again, Giovanni [my mouth was literally watering, thinking about the wonderful pastas and poultry!],

   Nope, Jason.
You THINK your education is now almost complete.
I'm studying snuff bottles over 49 years [Since mid-Feb. 1970], and I'M still a student.
   Almost every day, thanks to stuff I learn from others on the Forum, I learn
how many holes there are in my knowledge.
   But that's why it is so fruitful to share knowledge on a site like the Forum.
Best to all,

Shabbat Shalom,
Joey

Jason,

I finally shelled out $4.99 for some fairy lights and these are the results from two bottles (one shows great crizzling in an amber glass bottle, and the other shows the 3.5mm opening of a jade pebble).
Cheers,

Rube.

Hi,thank you both for your reply's,

Joey,  you are of course 100% correct at my age you realise you know very little of what goes on around you, you just find out enough of what you are interested in to get by and find out a little more the older you get.

Snuff bottles are a prime example, I have been studying/ collecting for over thirty years and I know very little. Although I do pick up some useful information on this site. I now no I shan't live long enough to finish my education  but am wise enough not to let it bother me. I just buy what I like  and enjoy. Grin

Rube, looks like fairy lights  are ok for some bottles but don't have enough power for thicker/opaque bottles! Just a thought, have you tried carefully bending the wires on the lights so you could get 3 or 4 lights in a closely  spaced line into a bottle to see if the extra light in the bottle would be beneficial. Wink

Regards to you both Jason.
