Almost Antiques …Floral Friday

This is the time of year we transition into different weather. We witness wild swings from wintry to spring–back and forth. For this reason, I want some old pottery around the house at these times. Is it comfort stuff? Today, we have three containers from the mid or early 20th century. They are filled with arrangements that are reminiscent of their time periods.

The mid to late 1940s are represented by the light tan vase. I like the hand-decorated details. All together, this seems nostalgic because artifacts like this were still widely in use when I was a child in the 1950s.

Early mid-20th century shows up in miniature form. The blue McCoy vine planter contains a posy of tiny blooms. The creme colored frosted glass fairy lamp was manufactured by Fenton Art Glass.

Artifacts may be classified as antique once they reach the century mark. This glass vase dates from the late 1920s, so it’s a near-antique. I used a plastic liner so you can see the etched flower design. Cheerful spring colors fill this vase.

The Blue Jay of Happiness quotes interior designer, Kelly Wearstler. “I love history; everything is inspired by history. So that’s why I love vintage and antiques.”
