As many of those pieces on the site were with me on the trip to Louisville & Baltimore!
So, hang tight for a few more days, as there may be a delay until 3/27 to get your order shipped if the ordered artifact is with me on the road!!
Meanwhile, Kanae will be LISTING NEW ARTIFACTS DAILY,
And shipping what she can, through the foreseeable future!

perhaps dancing, surrounding them it reads: MIR IST DIE CIGARRE MEIN ALLES WEN TANZEN DI WOLHLEIN AM FONIGEN SCHEIN, "To me the cigar is my everything, when the puffs dance in the sunny glow." There are three letters hand carved/etched close to the rim, near the handle and appear to read: 05L.
