  5. It seems to me you don't think it's a snuff bottle or a perfume bottle, can you let me know what you think it is please

  29. Tube you never get a appraisal on here, actually most say nothing at all , even if they know, it takes a lot of time to go to the trouble to post pics and like you say it's to learn that I do it, som...
