San Francisco Bay Area Snuff Bottle Collectors

San Francisco Bay Area Snuff Bottle Collectors: Per our decision at the last meeting, our 39th anniversary meeting will be held on Sunday, January 27, 2019 at the Hong Kong Flower Lounge, 51 Millbrae Avenue, Millbrae, CA at 12 noon. Raymond Lum and Al Zheng have selected a special dim sum menu for us and Al is graciously underwriting this luncheon so the fee is $15 per person. After lunch, the topic for discussion will be snuff bottles that are not of Chinese origin, i.e., Thai, Tibetan, Mongolian, Japanese, etc. Everyone attending is encouraged to bring a selection of these bottles.

On Thursday evening, March 28, 2019, Dr. Nancy Berliner, curator of Chinese art at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, has agreed to make a presentation to our group. Marsha Vargas Handley has graciously offered her home for this event. I need to know who will be attending. If 15 persons are not in attendance, we will not proceed with this event.

Please respond to me by Monday, January 14, 2019 if you plan to attend the luncheon and/or the Berliner lecture.
