I would like to share with you two beautiful crystal celery vase that I was very! lucky enough to be given a few years ago. I believe that they are from around 1840.They have pride of place on my dinning table and I admire them every day.
Celery was once considered a luxury so much so that 'vases' and containers were especially designed to hold them. Celery vases were popular from the early of the 19th to the early 20th centuary.
They celery vases would be placed and were a fixture on the table. They would hold the fresh celery in water to keep the celery crisp so people could snack on the celery throughout the day.
By the late 1800s celery was easier to grow and became less rare.
Thank you for looking......:-)
