Once again, a gentle Spring Muse has deposited on my doorstep a deeply gracious missive and a lovely vase (or, is it possibly a parfait glass?)! AmberRose, thank you, thank you, thank you!!! I am decidedly delighted by this most beautiful vase! I have vases, but this and my milk glass on pedestal vase are my very favorites. This vase makes me want to have a tea party. Cream scones, fresh butter, homemade strawberry jam, and Darjeeling tea - and of course, fresh flowers....
Fostoria? - the glass is very thin and delicate. American "Elegant Glass"? “Rings” like crystal. Clear glass except for wafer pedestal and base, which are both a translucent blush. Stands 6 inches tall.
All the meadows, wide unrolled,
Were green and silver, green and gold,
Where buttercups and daisies spun,
Their shining tissues in the sun.
