Today I bought a few things from another antiques dealer, and in the lot was a mystery item. She sold the lot at a very reasonable price and I've had fun tonight looking things up and pricing them. This one piece, though sent me on quite a hunt.
Can you guess what it is, and what it was used for?
This piece is made out of opaque, milky glass. Not really milk glass because you can almost see through it.
There is a hole for hanging, and oddly for a dipper,
a hole in the bottom of the bowl.
It fits nicely into my hand!
So what could this have been used for? If you think you know, leave a comment below. The first correct answer gets the prize.
Now, the prize for the first correct answer: since we're getting close to Valentine's Day, I thought these pretty crackle glass heart ornaments might be just the thing.
You may choose either the red
or the silver heart.
These are really pretty and were made in Germany. They're quite heavy and fairly large, pretty much filling up my hand. Can't you just see one hanging in a window, or from a shelf or doorway?
I know there are some creative minds out there, so I am looking forward to your responses to this vintage mystery.
