    This little guy has been lying around for a while. I think its 19th century, silk cord, glass marble-like bead, very intricate, very fine work. I remember hearing on the Roadshow that they signed the best ones, and this one is signed in the bottom compartment and also on the large bead. Does anyone have any tidbits of info about antique inro? Thanks for looking!

      Oooo I went to the Victoria and Albert Museum yesterday and they had quite a few of these. Fascinating and this could easily have been in a cabinet. It is like lovely.
