Another taken at the War & Peace Show, I love the little details like this that the exhibitors put on show. I am not sure what the blue wallet is to the side, at first I thought it was for darts but now I'm not sure, it has been suggested that it's a kit used for threading the leather throught the eyelets/sewing?

As always I thank you for your time, your thoughts/comments are very welcome.

An interesting set of artefacts, Sarah: not sure either about the blue wrap wallet......at first I thought it be an artist's wallet fro brushes or drawing materials, but that would not really fit with the other items.
Someone will be in the know however, I'm sure.

Intriguing. I'm much more interested in the details from such events than the (very) civilians dressing up as soldiers. The blue velvet is embroidered - that's quite a feat for starters! I thought at first it was a sewing case, but obviously not. Then I thought pencils, but there are no sharpened ends. To be honest they look like drum sticks but I'm assuming they are more likely to be a leather-work tool.
Re my upload - the light in the museum was fairly disastrous, as were the colours - I've desaturated my V1 by about 40%!

A rather brilliant composition Sarah, so very worthy of capturing a rather eclectic mixture of curios.

Some great detail in this image.

If these are the personal items of a US serviceman, could they be an elaborate set of chop sticks brought back from the Philippines or Japan?

Super detail and colours in this shot, the blue wallet looks like chopsticks to me, the 2 nearest with the gold wrapper unused ones. But don't see how that fits into the grouping.

Doh - just read Cliffs comment.

Thank you everyone, appreciated!
Cliff and Stuart, I think you are right. Suart.. the set up was in the America/Vietnam exhibit so that would kind of make sense.

The Americans taught the Chinese to play ball and the Chinese in turn gave the Americans chopsticks.

I am sure they are chop sticks, Sarah. I have seen them before bound round the thick end as these are.
A very interesting still-life - a change from fruit or dried garlicWink The baseball glove does remind me of an open oyster with the ball as the pearl.
