Antique Brass

I like to think this metal image is of Sir Walter Raleigh playing chess.

As far as being antique, it doesn’t go back as far (1554-1618) as the English gentleman himself, but only as far as the 1900’s when my grandmother gave me this nick-knack. 187 more words

Sadly because this castle in Lismore contains a contemporary art gallery BUT is closed for the winter! It closed at the end of November just before we arrived, and opens again in March I think.  262 more words

Snuff: High Society's Choice

Snuff, high society’s choice of tobacco inhalation, first appeared in England in the middle of the Sixteenth Century, along with tobacco imports from America.  Sir Walter Raleigh is usually supposed to have been the first to bring it home to the court of Queen Elizabeth 1, but Leonard Bolingbroke, of the Norwich Science Gossip Club, reckons that  it was more probably Ralph Lane (a lesser- known English explorer of the same period) in 1586. 474 more words
