    Artifacts & a whatsit

    Before the heat chased me yesterday, got a bit of clad, a wheatie, an old box that might've been a jewelry box (and a very pretty one in it's day I bet), and this buckle looking thingy.

    So, it has a little secret compartment?

    Thanks for peeking.

    That looks like a make up thing not a buckle. But hey I don't know.

    I sure don't know either, but it did appear to have some remnants of what looked like cloth around the open end. (shrug)

    Works for me. Thanks for the info!

    The box was a surprise find. It was buried pretty deep and under a thick root. Too bad it wasn't whole.
