railroad related buttons for one.
Silverware or china of different compagny's.

Always looking for Belgian Congo stuff!
That's cool, Kris. One of these days I'll post the few railroad items that I have. I think I have a couple buttons.
I once may have mentioned I do collect Japanese female kimono, as well as
Asian chopsticks. At the moment I have a nine days exhibition in a museum
nearby. Especially the kimono were well received as most Dutch have no or
hardly any idea of what they are. Just two walls to show (thanks to my friend
Patrick). All are from the period 1925/1930 through the 1980's!!
