These objects are what i have personally collected over the years from various sources including some which i swapped for items that i found particularly interesting. The first image is a japanese carving which originally was the front to a tiny draw i was going to use this in another project but it just seemed too good not to use it in this one.
The second piece i acquired some time ago and is itself quite a rare object indeed. This is the main religious seal of Holyrood Abbey From the evidence i have this originally was in a private collection which unfortunately was broken up and all sold off separately.
Its not in the best shape as you can see but i thought using it in this project would be a great place not only for keeping it safe but also for putting it on a permanent display.
Both links below can give you a little more info about holyrood.
The next object which was not visible in yestedays post is a hand carved citrine Buddha which is sitting on a miniature silver table.
I dont really know much about the table itself only that it dates to around 1910 and has been tested as silver, the top has a beautiful interwoven sheet silver design.I don't think these will be the last items to be placed into this treasure room with an oriental theme!!
Hopefully over the holiday period i will get to spend a little more time on this piece and show you all its progress as it evolves.
Have a wonderful christmas everyone
