Here are a few items I have picked up recently.
Now this bowl I really love (the one above). It is quite heavy and substantial and very different and attractive very arts and crafts.
The bowl below is I believe known as a handkerchief bowl. Will look lovely on the table at Christmas with lots of sweeties in me thinks.
I just love different.
This little flower bowl is also very attractive with a beautifully marled colouring to the glass.
I had bought a fruit bowl set and five dishes (photo below) as I really loved the pattern on this one. Unfortunately the large bowl became the only casualty as it had smashed within the packaging. I will however keep my eye open for a stand alone bowl to go with these little dishes.
I have so far managed to source 9 of these lovely little dishes and one large fruit bowl. They really are pretty. I have another three to source of the small bowls and I would quite like another large bowl to even things out a little.
The two items below were sold as separate dishes but I believe they are part of a set as if you look closely there is a drainage hole in the bottom of the dish on top. I believe this to be a salad draining set. I just love the pale greens of this beautiful glassware and I count myself so lucky.
The Sundae dishes below are quite lovely and substantial what I call proper Ice Cream Sundae dishes. I have six of these little dishes.
I have found lots of beautiful pieces in America but the charges for postage are off the beam and often cost more than the item itself. Thus far I have not been tempted as even though the pieces are different and really lovely you have to be realistic at the end of the day.
There are further items but I thought I would share these few lovely pieces with you. I love beautiful things and I am so lucky to have these few. I am particularly fond of the older pieces.
Right must get on.
Catch you soon.
