The association with the driftwood makes a lovely assemblage like that even more interesting. Hopefully you'll choose to keep rather than part with it!

Hi Doren it is a natural association,  as found apart from the prepping.  I will post some close ups later.

 

Cheers Bobby

Thanks Adam I posted here for two reasons, one see what my friends of TFF thoughts on selling it and two to keep adding to my post. I will take yours and Kane’s advice and I will keep it. 

A rare piece like that will only come your way once. 

 

Thank you Adam
