This weeks word is rare. And here are rare items :
very old chinese porcelan cats
a medal from Napoleon, he gave to his soldiers while on exile in St. Helena. There are only about 100 left in the whole world.
and my grandpa's beer mug. Maybe mugs are not rare but this one is to me. The top is of pewter with his name engraved and there is the weapon of Hessen/Germany on it. When I was a little girl I was very proud to go into the local pub and ask to fill in the mug which I carefully carried back for my grandpa. There was no bottled beer in this small little town.
