vase





Brief post today, as I'm nursing a torn muscle and am feeling a little groggy as a result of the painkillers and the large glass of red wine with which I washed them down.

The vase is a family heirloom. It stood on my maternal grandmother's mantelpiece in London throughout WW2.

Whilst their house wasn't bombed, the neighbours' was and the vase remained intact.

Don't think it's worth anything much, but it has great sentimental value. There's a small bead stuck halfway down the narrow neck, put there by my brother when he was little!

Hmmm, pain killers washed down with red wine -- I bet that was one of the recommendations on the pharmaceutical company's directions, right?

Hope you feel better...

Cool! Do you know who made it? Is it marked?

Hope that leg is better. Tread lightly combining pharmaceuticals and alcohol! :)

Thanks all for your kind thoughts. It's a little less painful today. Sticking to acetaminophen, ibuprofen & tea!

Steve, there are no markings on the bottom. Would love to know where it originated.
