I get approximately 30 hits per day on WLA images from all over the world.- Forever Wiser Apart from adding a lot of photos for use on Wikipedia and by the Museums, I found there were a lot of areas in the Museums (and a lot of objects too) which I had either forgotten or maybe never previously discovered. - DJ-Architect There is not currently an article on Ikeda Taishin on the English-language or Japanese Wikipedias, but I would nevertheless like to copy this photo over to the Wikimedia Commons so that it'll be easily findable and usable once such an article is created. - toranosuke Samurai mask by DJ-Architect Mother of pearl basin by Forever Wiser Box for writing utensils by the wee pixie 18.

Beautiful caddy and great photo. I've really enjoyed your excellent pictures from the V&A. Thanks for licensing your work under CC. This has been used to illustrate an answer abouttea caddies. - lelijg Tea caddy by Veronika B Anne of Cleves by the wee pixie Thank you for uploading this. Isn't it an amazing item? I saw a picture of it in the book 'Shells' by Mary Maguire and from the picture credits I could see it had to be in the V&A. I want to visit it and see it close-up.-lottery_dreams Shellwork Vase by mrsraggle 19.
