Today a good friend gave me this very special silver, enamel, tortoise and lacquer watch case circa 1770-80. The piece has the most amazing painting on the back- Neptune riding in his triumphal chariot holding the trident with cherub or putti riding on the back of his seahorses while whipping them across rough seas. On the other side is an enamel portrait of the original owners wife set in silver and tortoise. Safe to assume this amazing piece was used by a well traveled man to keep time while away from his family. I love the idea that man selected the pagan imagery to protect him on his travels and bring him back to the woman in the portrait. #lifeofacollector#boxes#case#pocketwatch#18thcentury#neptune#pagan#miniature#enamel#tortoise#generosity#friendship#home
I’m a little late for #worldturtleday but seeing as turtles and tortoises are among the one of the world’s most endangered vertebrates, it’s worth talking about everyday lol. This here is Mega, our Ambassador Radiated tortoise. His species is declining due to habitat loss and poaching. They’re considered one of the most beautiful tortoises.... unfortunately. If you swipe to the last photo you will see a rescue from the end of 2018 where 7,000 were seized in a village from poachers and just 6 months before that,10,000 had been found in a home near by. Rescue and rehab teams are doing what they can to save them all. But living in those conditions you can imagine how many are in poor health. I don’t condone just anyone getting an exotic pet, but if need be, look into responsible breeders and do not take from the wild !! ————————————————— #worldturtleday#tortoise#radiatedtortoise#endangeredspecies
