Sobald dein ton das ohr bestreichet wird selbst die grauamkeit erweichet
Music preiß aller freyen Kräfte
die stets mein geist sein labsal nent
ob manches schwächer Hirn gespinste
dir gleich nicht seinen beifal gönt
As soon as your sound has touched the ear
even the cruelty softens
Music press all free forces
which my mind calls its refreshment
whether some weaker brains
do not grant you its approval

command was completed, and it wasn’t done.

Snuff Box, Pressed Horn, Mourning, Denis Auguste Affre (1793 to 1848)
French
Circa 1840s

Priest, professor, appointed Arch Bishop of Paris in 1840; he was not involved in politics as he was dedicated to pastoral endeavors; he was killed during the Insurrection of 1848. He did not heed the warning General Louis Eugene Cavaignac, presenting himself at the entrance to the Faubourg Saint-Antoine, with green branch as sign of peace. He had spoken only a few words, when shots rang-out; the insurgents thinking they were betrayed, opened fire wounding the archbishop who was struck by a stray bullet. He died on 27 June. The National Assembly of France declared their tremendous sorrow in a decree; a public funeral on 7 July was one of the most moving assemblies of the period.
Affre Archev of Paris
Wounded to death on the barricades
June 25, 1848
The good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep
That my blood soitle last pay

Brass & Copper Engraved Tobacco Box, Dutch, Early 18th Century, entire view 1

Molded top and bottom, engraved tavern scenes flanked by full-length putty.
The engraving is worn, it looks like "Woe Geset" with the other side reading "Wij Trinken
wel" translating to: “Because we sit, we can drink”. We may not be 100% accurate;
language appears to be a German - Northern Dutch dialect.
