Hi all,
Just got a new bottle, cameo agate bannerman, I have only this photo from the sale but I will make others soon.
Well hollowed, jade top with stone collar. The carving is really fine. Maybe it's not old but I love it.
In the same sale I've bought other bottles and 2 nice books 2 volumes hugh moss and a&v snuff bottles collection (50 euros the lot of books Shocked).

I'm on phone I don't know if the photo is well sized sorry.
Cheers
Thomas

Dear Thomas,

     I agree with John.
Re.books, do you mean the V & A catalogue?
That would be from the Victoria & Albert Museum in London.
I don't know any "a & v" book...
Best,

Hello Gentlemen,

John, It's night here, please see attached photo. Others will follow in the light of day.

Joey, my apologies you're right it's the Victoria and Albert so V&A. I'm trying to find some nice books I already have two translated into French, I liked those but a bit expensive on eBay so I'm very happy to have been able to buy them for cheap, they're big.
I would like to buy the quartz books too, soon.

Best
Thomas
