Vintage Lavender Spinnaker Blur Glass Bell-pressed Pattern For Sale
i just found this at the coolest estate sale so far, and i saw a early 1800's painted chest a few months ago. the person that had this was an OBSESSIVE, i mean OBSESSIVE bell collector. mainly they had all these 3 bell things that used to be on horse taxi yokes. and leather strap bells. 3 days of the sale, by the 3rd day ALL the antique bells were gone ALMOST. i managed to grab a small hand made bell. not a cow bell. maybe for a sheep/goat/dog. also the closets of leather strap bells. i got there, they said 75% off + they DISAPPEARED in a flash. i also was in the basement. OH, they also had a BUNCH of cruet sets. all late victorian. a dealer snagged like all of them when it switched to fire sale. i only grabbed 3 lonely mustard pots. i think mustards. oh my god, glass bells, porcelain bells, they had them set up everywhere. i will be listing BELLS. a few NON bells, plus i grabbed 3 glazed coffee mugs. i had been searching for some good mugs. i keep killing them. or cracking them. this was sitting on the mantel. i am omnivorous at sales. i will grab ANYTHING that grabs my fancy. which means i have found some interesting things. i grabbed as many colored glass bells as i could. clear or white BLAH. i don't like diamonds either BORING! i like color. i like this color, it turns blue in incandescent light. alas, the color does not go w/ the decor.luckily the collector put the label on or had it from the antique dealer who sold it. THANK you. $20. you get a deal. oh man. i wish i could take with me into that sale. i am being a good girl. i am only keeping 2 or 3 bells. do you know how good that is? and the 3 mugs. i got a deal, gets a steal. an suggested this was boyd's glass.
