What a trip to a flea market can bring you

Postby Kesselrock » Sun Jan 23, 2011 1:29 pm

I went to a flea market yesterday and I found these items which I thought would be perfect for the Firefly verse.

Image

I will start with posting pictures of the cap/hat. In my opinion it is the closest one that I have seen that comes to the Ariel EMT cap from the front.

The next item is a silver container with kanji writing engraved on the inside of the lid. I have no Idea what it says, nor do I know what it has been used for (maybe opium :twisted:)

Image

Image

Another item is a pendant with dragons on one side and Luck written in kanji on the other side.
The last item is an old chinese coin.

Not bad for a couple of hours of bargain hunting :lol:

The box may be an inkwell. I've seen numerous inkwells from the middle east that are that very same size and shape.

Thank you to all of you.

I am not quite sure that it is a inkwell, even though that was my first assumption when I saw it, there are no traces after ink on the inner side.
There are traces after another form of liquid though...

Does anyone know somebody that can translate the inscription?

Awesome finds! I never get that lucky when I go to Flea Markets. I like the pendant, one reason, I like Dragons.

Thank you,

I imagined the pendant as a sign to the Tongs that you are a friend, or such... ;)
