Default For sale: my book on fine receptacles of the Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque periods

The text is in German but the dates assigned to the objects will be perfectly understood. It's 96 pp., hard cover, glossy paper, more than 100 color illustrations including many rare historical illustrative sources.

Behältnisse für Kostbares 1500-1700, published in 2005.

It contains more than 30 fine and rare leather pouches, purses, money boxes, wooden and iron caskets, padlocks and keys, all 300 to 500 years old, from two German private collections.

It's 65 euro including postage.

Are you also collecting old currency (to put in the boxes...) ?

Luc,

Sorry for not answering back any earlier.

I do not actuall collect old currency but as you can see in one of the pics do have a few 15th to 17th century coins.
