Some years ago I was charged with the task of keeping and perpetuating wild tobacco seeds.  I didn’t feel it right to lightly handle these special seeds so I made a variety of containers to hold the seeds as I passed them on.  Here are two of the tobacco seed holders.  Both are fabricated Sterling and commercial chain.  The stoppers are carved fossilized mammoth ivory.
