A mix of extraordinary vintage glass and porcelain sugar bowl combined with thrift shop finds.
The green glass bowl and the sugar bowl have been stashed in my cupboard for many years. This assemblage piece gives them a new opportunity in which their beauty can be appreciated.
The green diamond depression glass flat bowl features an opalescent open lace rim. It is an example of glass craftmanship of an earlier era and it’s influence in bringing beauty into everyday life in Canada and the United States. Glassware made during this era was very popular due to it’s affordability and availability. More basic items were sometimes distributed as promotional items such as in cereal boxes of Quaker oats in Canada and the United Stares around the time of the Great Depression.
The porcelain sugar bowl is an example of the beauty of hand painted decoration circa 1900. The detail and colours are extraordinary. It is truly elegant.
