I placed them here on my mantle...
I really do not know much about these. I was told they were probably dated 1880 - 1900. And by looking on Ebay and a few other sites I see that they could be Moser or Czech? They appear to be white cased glass cut to cranberry glass? Or are they bohemian? If anyone would like to share their knowledge I would love to hear it.
I also got this frame. I love these deep ebonized and walnut frames. I have several of them and didn't need anymore but the size of this one is what sold me on it. To give you an idea of the size, the photo is a 4x6.
The man on the left is my maternal great grandfather, Winston Dudley Miller, Sr. and his brother Robert Lee Miller. And it is Winston's maternal line that relates us to Harry S. Truman. Cool, huh?
The reason I went to this sale in the first place was to check out this half tester bed, this dresser and this etegere. I didn't care for the wood on the bed or the etegere, the dresser was nice and I think I would have gotten that if it weren't for the lusters. I have always wanted a pair of those and dressers are easier to come by plus I already have 3 Victorian dressers. So the decision was pretty easy.
I bought this RS Prussia bowl last week at an auction. From the sticker on the back I saw that the previous owner had purchased it in 1982 for a whopping $325! So when it was going to sell for $40 I had to get in on it, I felt like I was getting a steal. (got it for $45) I know prices have dropped considerably since then but oh well I still feel like a got a good piece!
Livy dog can't take her eyes off of those lusters! I think she's mesmerized by those beauties!
As always, thankyou so much for taking the time to read my blog. I appreciate it so much! Have a great week!
