This version of our brass time capsule contains a bit of the past in the form of fossilized Titanosaur eggshell. The 2nd photo shows an example of one of our larger fossil specimens. I think May Kendall, poet and satirist, puts the air of this time wonderfully:
“I abide in a goodly Museum,
Frequented by sages profound:
'Tis a kind of strange mausoleum,
Where the beasts that have vanished abound.
There's a bird of the ages Triassic,
With his antediluvian beak,
And many a reptile Jurassic,
And many a monster antique. “
