SHOW & TELL


More participants here




I come to an end with the content of my show case. All the other things I have shown already in Show & Tell.



A shaving knife with an ivory handle. It belonged to my grandpa. It is very beautiful if you call a knife beautiful and a real antique.



These are miniature guns, some of them as small as a keyholder. Mr. G. collected them once, long time ago. Behind in the red envelope are silver medals issued for the Bicentennial of the United States 1776 - 1976 which my aunt had sent me and which I have shown already.

You know, I have this collection gun bought in Waterloo, with a silver handle, but it's lost in my closet, till now I didn't find a proper way to hang it on the wall in a way I truly like it!
Thanks for sharing your collection.

My Papa also shaved with a straight knife like that until the day he died. I loved to watch him soap his face and then shave so carefully!

Pamela said...

What an interesting collection you have! Thank you for sharing it with us. My grandfather had a single edge razor like that and as a little girl I always found it fascinating to watch him shave with it.
