Dan’s daughter had a book of photographs of thousands of antiques arranged by category- several pages of watches or plates or clocks or little statues. She looked at this book for hours and was mostly interested in the appraised value of each item. Her explanation for the incredibly expensive price tags was that these items were encrusted with valuable gems only we just couldn’t see them. These diamonds and gold were hidden under the paint or inside the objects. We played a game where she would open the book at random and we would race each other to find the most expensive item on the page. She won best out of three.
This object actually had the goods.
Norman usually takes the pictures but he was too busy today
