OK--here it comes. I'm going to give away three items, two of which are slightly damaged but no one will ever know if you put them on a high shelf in your curio cabinet.
First up, this absolutely beautiful blue opalescent Fenton hobnail double ruffle rim vase. About 6" tall. There is a crack under the glass on one of the ruffles but it is not visible from the front whatsoever and you actually really have to look hard to see it AND you can't even feel it.
Up next is a white opalescent Fenton hobnail vase with a ruffle rim. The damage on this one is more pronounced but again, you can't see it from the front. When I initially saw the crack--and this one can be felt--I thought it had broken but had been quite expertly repaired, but I really think it's just cracked, perhaps from having been put down a little too hard. Believe me, like the blue vase, this one will display beautifully. 5-1/2" tall.
Last, but certainly not least, here's a gorgeous deep orange crystal bowl. No damage here! It's a shade under 4" tall.
When I put it in the window, wow!
If you'd like a chance at winning one of these lovelies, just be a VintageChristine follower and leave a comment on this post. Giveaway ends at midnight on Friday, December 10 and on Saturday I'll draw names--the first one drawn will receive the blue vase, the second one drawn will get the white vase and #3 will OBVIOUSLY get the orange bowl.
I'm taking a bunch of my vintage costume jewelry to the Slidell Antique Association's Christmas Block Party this Friday--I managed to wrangle the hubs into helping me with the enticement of the Party's cash bar. Woo hoo! However, he has strict orders to refrain from suggesting anyone become a "Stuntman", heh heh heh.
I mean, really, who would ever think this man would do something so ridiculous?
Happy Monday, y'all! We're freezing our buns off down here in southern Mississippi. Yaaaaaaaay!!!!!
