No idea what was in it. I refreshed which tin, and I had gotten it at an estate sale. Sorry I couldn't help!

Brilliant. I might get a chance to pop to UWE in March- (see how busy you are though!)- otherwise I am exibiting at our new show 'Life's a Bench' Studio K162 Renate Scholz, Klugstraße 162, Munich.

Melissa! Thanks for the comments. I am very pleased to hear that you are going to be in the UK in March. Perhaps we could meet up?

I have sent an email to Llantarnam Grange, mentioning that you plan to visit. Louise, who runs the gallery, is wonderful.
