Wall shots

Another in the series of wall & shelf shots from the man cave. A lamp, probably from the 1930s, made from a hawksbill turtle, with its original silk covered cord and on/off switch.

shelf shot

Just a few things sitting on top of a book case. What's that you say? What are they?

From left to right: a repro phrenology head wearing a lodge (oddfellows maybe?) cap. A big shell. A wooden sectional sphere which opens up to reveal its segments (a geometry teaching model), a papier maché head (probably Punch), a skep and a single Bradley & Hubbard mastiff book end.

And and arts & crafts picture frame with motto: A good book is the best companion.
