Last night, I was at a Value Village. I had 7 sherberts in my cart, when I said – not an exact quote, “Wait a minute, you don’t need any more sherberts!” So……with a fair bit of reluctance, I put them back. Three had a needle etch that matches something I have, somewhere. Four were cut. I guess it can be done (I can go into a thrift shop and not buy anything! I guess my guy made up for it – he went to an auction last night and bought me a very fab, old spinning wheel…….Finding a spot for it is going to be tough.
Anyway………Back to glass……If you have trolled through these pages you will note that, although I have some pinwheel, it’s not really my ‘thing’.
Found this in the garage and I can see what likely interested me and caused me to buy it. First, it is oddly heavy. Second, the shape. I am assuming that it is a champagne flute. I am certain that there are lots of pinwheel champagne flutes, but I honestly can’t recall seeing any around. Third, it has an attractive shape/stem and last, it is really, really, shiny.
Likely never see another exactly the same.
