This leather covered artist portfolio has a set of twin owls "Poker etched" into the leather. In Colonial times this artistry was created by taking a hot poker out of the fire and burning an image into leather or wood.

Virginia Gold Tin Watercolour set
As you know, I really enjoy making a vintage watercolor set out of any antique or vintage tin. This virginia Gold tin is one that I recently ran across. It has been now and turned it into a neat watercolor set. I added the Windsor-Newton / Cotman watercolors, some brushes, pencil and handmade dip pens. Also added a water siphon for adding water to the colors. This one has been sold. But if you are interested in having me make you a similar set, just contact me at my email address firstname.lastname@example.org
Items included: Feather quill, water siphon, pencil and holder, three brushes and three dip pens. Also included is an envelop with additional dip pen nibs.
