Had a lovely drive and dropped in at the Main Thru Church Antiques Mall in Orono. Picked up this pretty goblet. The amberina colour is rich and quite spectacular.
This piece has the ruffled edge and while it is a goblet, could be used as a really pretty little vase.

Yesterday our larger neighbourhood held a multi-block yard sale. We do this collectively this the first weekend in June annually.
This year I bought only a very few things from my neighbours (some years it is really bad!). Sold a few items. Our friend Dave came over to sell a few things of his own. He had picked up a couple pieces of glass that I acquired. This is one of them.
I was taken by this shade of blue – very pretty. A cross between cobalt and turquoise.
Replacements.com calls the shade Vintage-Blue. The grapes and leaves are quite obvious.
I’ve been trying to determine the age of this piece. I’ve seen it sold online as a 1960s piece. But I don’t really know.
