Come Out Come Out Wherever You Are
Before I put it in my display case with my other snuffboxes I plan to have a hunt for this John Blane. Questions come to mind immediately. How old is the snuffbox? Finding John should help date it.
Was it owned by an individual or is it an advertising box?
I'm hoping I can not only date the box but find the genealogy of this John Blane
Another aspect of being a genealogy addict is this need to find out about the people who owned the objects I now have in my possession.
So watch out John Blane, I'm looking for you!
