it was made by a co-worker off my mother.

    A beautiful money-box. It is similar to the "Velsen Sassenheim" of Gerrit Dijkstra that I love too. It was made for you? What a wonderful birthday present! An "Unika"! Where did your Mum work? And she brings over pieces of Tapio's cut glass pieces too. Now who's a lucky lad!
