The American Antique Fair

I went to the American Antique Fair yesterday. I went specifically to see these Memory jugs, which were glass jugs covered with some sort of putty with objects embedded in it. Very interesting although the effect was sort of muddy. From the 1920's.

Also there were lots of nice examples of Tramp art. Here's several frames.

Also, this strange diorama of dolls, about the size of hope chest. The sales person offered it to be at the bargain price of $18,000. What a deal!

Does the memory jug really hold water or liquids? (or just memories?)

Oh, these look like things I would love to make!
