A mo­ment of en­light­en­ment

Homes and Antiques Magazine - - MAILBOX -

I have a slightly un­usual habit of work­ing from the back of a mag­a­zine to the front, usu­ally read­ing each sec­tion in right-page or­der af­ter I have pe­rused the front cover. I had set­tled down to en­joy the May is­sue, from the back page, and was fas­ci­nated with the il­lus­tra­tions on pages 136 and 137, but couldn’t imag­ine how the pieces fit­ted to­gether. How­ever, on turn­ing to page 134, the amaz­ing pho­to­graph of the Egyp­tian box was re­vealed. On re-read­ing the ar­ti­cle I dis­cov­ered that the box can be viewed in Ed­in­burgh. I look for­ward to my drive north later this month to view this amaz­ing arte­fact with such a unique his­tory. MARIE WHITE, VIA EMAIL
