Some of those were beautiful! My dad had one that belonged to his grandfather and I am not sure who had it before, but it was very plain and simple.


I love watching antique programmes so have seen a number of these but I’ve never seen any like the first one! It seems more bulky to carry than the others. I prefer the horn one and the embossed one. Thank you for sharing this post.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
