Dear Tom,

    I've a request: Please send me the 2 page PDF to my personal email, so I can print it out.
Incidentally, you talk about drilling stoppers to inset the spoon.

But that was not needed in the case of many if not most stoppers.
They were made of Mandarin beads cut in half across the drilled cord hole.
Thus the half-beads each had an already drilled hole in which to set the stem of the spoon.
But then there was a tiny hole in the stopper's top.
So a little bead finial was glued into the hole, and the famous [or infamous] Imperial 'nipple' stopper was born...
