Fleamarket find...


 Another item that I thought was beautiful, but I left it at the flea market.  but I was tempted to buy it for one of my daughters.  I just wasn't sure if either one would like it.

It is so pretty I don't think I could have walked away from it!

CheerfulMonk said...

Hurray for pictures in times like that. 🙂

Bill said...

Something for more formal times, I think. Still, it is a lovely piece.

Nancy Chan said...

I think that is a beautiful glass bowl too.

Hootin' Anni said...

How would they NOT like it? It's stunning!!

Sandra said...

it is so beautiful, in my case, i love it but don't want it. you made the right decision. it is hard to buy for others. so many things i see, i think are wonderful but that doesn't mean i want it.. photos are great, we have it but don't have to dust it

Hello,

It is a pretty bowl, perfect for the right owner.

Have a happy weekend!

Ann said...

It's very pretty. I think I would be the same way. I might be tempted to buy it for my daughter but I doubt she would like it. It would probably end up in a cupboard somewhere.

LOL - I'm with Sandra on this one! YAM xx

Martha said...

I agree completely with what Sandra said. I think photos of things like that are better than the item itself.

This would be pretty filled with fruit.

it's a wonderful crystal dish Rose... we don't buy things like this for our sons families...
we still have silver serving trays and crystal bowls in boxes that we will never use....peter:)

A bit too fancy for my taste, but it is pretty!

Michael Rawluk said...

I agree that it is beautiful.

When my wife's parents passed, she and her siblings had to deal with LOTS that they didn't want to discard (sell, donate or trash) but didn't really want or have room for. We all realized that we already have more than our children want. We all vowed to simplify, but I haven't seen any concrete actions toward that.

That said, this is a lovely bowl in a very old style, and you did a nice job with glass on a dark background.

This is beautiful! These were really popular when my grandmother was a young woman so maybe in the 1920's or 1930's? I remember her having one that looked somewhat similar.

Kodak said...

It is a beautiful piece. Many young people are not interested in our china, silver or other dishes these days.

That is a great glass piece. I don't think I have seen one quite like it.

Red Rose Alley said...

Oh, I like that, Rose. My mother-in-law has one similar, but it's emerald green, and I always admired it whenever I visited her. You can put many things in this one, as it's just the right size. Great for the holidays.
