  • I just don't see such a sharp divide... keeping company is a job of sorts. Also I have my dog so I'm forced to go on walks, and think I'm not alone in this. Many people also like their dogs warning of any intruders, even if it's the high-pitched yip of a tiny dog that will never scare away an average human. Also... in medieval times people kept menageries of exotic animals. Keeping...

  • Great stuff! The egyptian collar is gorgeous!! Not the original poster, but thanks! FWIW, I've read that small dogs kept for company have existed at least since Roman times. Pliny talks of the ladies' dogs that could ease stomach pains by being kept close to it. Studies of dogs from Romain Britain yielded heights between 23 and 72cm.

  • Thanks for the insight. :) I disagree with part of your conclusion, though. The fact that you need lots and lots of them, and there aren't that many around is just what makes it very expensive, probably in the "outrageously expensive" range, which is why a whole mantle of them would be soooooo kingly, I guess. :) Cheers!

  • For what it's worth, I also saw them and isntantly thought "vair". Ermine tends to look differently and was incredibly expensive. As a related aside, a Spanish royal garment, a 13th c. man's sideless surcoat in Las Huelgas still show bits of its... rabbit lining! Cheers!

  • Hello! Seems like very sensible advice, all :) Thanks! The only doubt is whether I'll be able to get neatsfoot oil here (I never heard the term until I got on leatherwork English-language mailing lists). A friend has suggested olive oil... For the key... do you mean a good mineral oil, or the same kind of thing? Cheers! Marianne [Non-text portions of this message have been removed]

  • To give you a better idea of the condition of the items I've taken some photos. http://picasaweb.google.com/marianne.perdomo/Arqueologia_siberica For starters I wonder whether removing soil would best be done with a brush, dry, or what... They...
