I went shopping today. Yes, I know, again. Yes, I know, more Amber Glassware. Who could walk past this beautiful vase for $4.50? Not me. My neighbour even assisted by being at the same store and carefully driving it home for me, while I went and did more shopping. She was going home anyway.
I also got this cute Butterfly sugar bowl and the Pennine Wedgewood Cup for $3.50 or thereabouts. Not bad when I have just seen the same Wedgewood cup for $10 on ebay. I've also seen 6 cups and saucer for $15 + delivery, so .... The Pennine Wedgewood was manufactured from 1965 to 1971, was "Made In England" and is marked "Oven to Table" on the bottom.
The Butterfly sugar bowl has no mark of maker on the bottom or country of origin. I just liked the shape and the motif, given my name is Vanessa and it means "butterfly" in Greek if you look up the baby names book.
I'm quite liking 70's cups at the moment in brown for some reason....
