Dang, I Almost Forgot About The Second Estate Sale On Saturday! Can't Believe This Was All Still There! Status: $20? Sold!
Not too shabby a haul for one little sale! Let's see...Five Dinner Plates (was a sixth but has a chip), a Platter and a Creamer all by Russel Wright / Stubenville for $20. A cute little Porcelain Kitty Planter (?) for $1 (!). A pair of Plastic "Skelgas" Advertising Salt and Pepper Shakers for $?? (dunno, they were for the Girlfriend). And a Coctail Shaker with cut glass dots for $5. Not...too...shabby.
What do you suppose this little guy is for? I can't imagine planting anything in that little space.
::shrugg:: It wouldn't matter if it was, I'd find a way to kill anything I planted in there anyway. Oh,
I got it! You're supposed to plant "Cat Tails" in there! Get it? Maybe I can find some fake ones.
Like I said, these are the Girlfriends. I'm kinda surprised that she liked these as they are
advertising pieces. She'll probably display them with their backs turned. I think she just likes the
shapes. I was pretty wiped out when we bought all this. I can't even remember how much they
This is a beautiful coctail shaker. It's got 16 half inch cut glass dots all around it. It looks a little
like Hazel Atlas Capri Dots glassware but that has raised dots, not incised. I looked around a
little but can't identify it off hand. Anybody?
Last but not least, the Russel Wright. Like I need more! It's threatening to elbow out any other
patterns in my china cabinet. Nothin' doin'. It ain't gonna happen. I'm soon going to thin the
Russel Wright herd. Up 'til now I've only had chartreuse dinner plates. I'm not enamored of
matchy match Russel Wright American Modern collections. I much prefer to mix up all those
beautiful colors! That, I believe, was as much the beauty of the collection as much as the
actual design shapes. And you know...at $20? That's almost thrift store prices!
