Members of the Historic Covenanter Church Foundation are looking for help.
They need an expert in Scottish memorabilia to evaluate a number of items the nonprofit has been given.
"Some of it is recent and some of it we've had for several years," said member Jonathan Welch. "It's all either Scottish or Scottish-themed."
One is a true curiosity, he said.
"We have a Scotch bottle, empty, of course, that is also a music box. The bottle is also a music box with a tiny Scottish figure in the bottom. When the music box is wound, it plays a tune and the figure dances in a circle," he said. The Dancing Scot music decanter comes with its original box; it was created for Gilby and had contained blended Scotch whiskey.
They've been able to evaluate the few items that have local connections, but others are beyond their expertise.
"Most of it is not local," Welch said. "We have a number of porcelain items that were made in either England or Scotland."
Among them are 14 identical porcelain statuettes of a piper. There are also porcelain tea sets, each honoring a different Scottish clan. Those are English and were made by Royal Standard.
The foundation has also been given pewter castings of soldiers, all undated.
It also has one wooden jumping jack toy.
The items range in age from late 20th century to ones created in the early 1700s. All are kept locked up.
