Glass and China from Today's Estate.

Today Kristen came home from an estate where the items varied in era . Above and below is some wonderful Art Glass pieces which date from the 1960's.

This stunning glass would date from an earlier time, probably made by Fenton and remind me of lollies and smacked hands from Grandma telling children to keep away.

Charming floral china. Kristen asked me when I thought the silver topped floral pieces dated from. I thought around the 1920's when do you think?

Watch me change from here...
To here.
Kristen had looked up in my English china guide and the company went out of business in 1887. So I was just a bit off...ha The colours are really vivid considering their age.
Pretty little Tunstall vase. To contact please email

  9. Hi Katherine and thanks for reading and commenting on my latest blog Mum and Dad will love you for thinking they are young to be married 40 yrs :) They are 59 and 62 yrs Dad in particular quite often gets mistaken as being younger than he is and then when they find out his 'kids' are 39 and 37 he tells people he married an older woman who had already had kids, lol!
    xx Karen
