    Picked these few interesting little odds and ends up over the last couple of days. My usual haunts GW and Salvation. The round cinnabar box came in a beautiful silk and brocade case. Nice intricate carving with a black inside. I was asked if I thought it was real and I said probably not. You can stick it with a hot pin and if it smells like plastic there's your answer. I didn't try that but I still think it's cool. The little elephant cuff links could be bone and the ear rings I'm unsure about. They are a bit yellowed and one is split, which ivory tends to do. They all went together so well I figured why not post them as a group. -Mike-

      Love that box - it's a nice thing even if you say it's plastic.
      The cufflinks are just fantastic!

      Well I'm not 100% sure about about any of it yet. I think the links are awesome too. The ear rings.... I'm leaning toward real. Having said that I've just jinxed
