Dear all

As mentioned during our last virtual meeting, I am willing to share my database with fellow members who are keen in the research. Here is a summary of the contents:

1. Snuff bottle publications:
Over 480 book covers, 940 catalog covers, 180 ICSBS journal covers & 50 ebooks
An Excel worksheet containing details such as the title, author/publisher, date, number of bottles & number of pages will be included

2. Auction images
Over 580 auction houses with snuff bottle images, results & e-catalogs (when available)
Each auction house has an average of 20 auctions, each auction with an average of 100 images

3. Inside-painted artists and works
Includes more than 600 artists from all periods and sample works from each artist (average 20 per artist)

4. Events & Exhibition images
These includes exhibitions, museum collections and event photos.

The database is an ongoing project so updates will be available in the future.

Any member who is interested can send me a private message for the details.

Thanks.


Richard

Dear Richard,
that is very interesting. In which format is the database? Is it accessible on Internet, or is it on a drive pen, or what?
Thank you very much
Kind regards
Giovanni

Hi Giovanni

Thank you for your interest and inquiry.

Basically they are mostly images (jpg format). The e-books are in PDF format and of course the Excel worksheet.

The database is organised in folders so you can use any computer (PC/Mac) or handheld devices (mobile phone/tablet) to access and open them.

Due to its sheer size, it is not possible to access them online. So it will be downloaded to at 2TB (2000GB) external hard disk. It is a plug-and-play hard disk, so you can just attach it to any USB port and you are ready to go. No additional software is required.

Future updates will be uploaded online so that members can download and update the database accordingly.

The will be a cost for the hard disk including shipping charges but all future updates are free to access. The cost is USD 500.

Regards.

Hi all

Just to add: since this is a plug & play external hard disk, no external power source is required. So you can do away with different power voltage in different countries.

In fact, you can even connect it to your TV is it has a USB connector to view the images. Although you will not be able to view the PDF or Excel worksheet on it without installing additional apps.

Regards.

Thank you dear Richard.
I can understand it, basically it is matter of images and unfortunately they take a lot of space in order to be appreciated properly.
And there is the time that you have spent too, which must have been considerable.
Kind regards
Giovanni

Richard,

After seeing what you have in your database, I know that I would at least like to have some of its content.  Particularly, Peter Bentley's interior painted bottle section.  I, like many, contributed to the content of his database, but never got a copy.  So, I'm glad to see you have a full copy and are building upon his work.  I'll be in touch with a personal email to work with you on acquiring a full copy, or at least a portion of what you have.  Thanks for sharing you resource with us at the meetings and your willingness to share the content with the group.

Respectfully, Charll
