"An object in a museum case must suffer the de-natured existence of an animal in a zoo. In any museum the object dies - of soffocation and the public gaze - whereas private ownership confers on the owner the right and the need to touch. As a young child will reach out to handle the thing it names, so the passionate collector, his eye in harmony with his hand, restores to the object the life-giving touch of its maker."   -  Bruce Chatwin, 1988

 

 

 

 

While collecting, one quickly comes face to face with the realization that there's little to no information out there on the subject to be found.  It was true when started collecting and from what I can tell it remains true still. 

 

With the grandest of intentions of building something really amazing and something continually being updated with pictures of new collections the wind quickly came out of the sails when all inquiries and invitations to share pictures of other's collections went unanswered.

 

Hopefully the Drake collection and my collection are comprehensive enough to give you a sampling of what's out there to collect and enjoy.

 

Wishing you the best - TheFeederGuy
