I'm always keen to find some interesting
Nice set, dontcha think? Anybody know what this finish or pattern is called? I'm tiring of calling it
brownish green metallic fade. And it's a much lovelier finish than that description would lead one to
believe. When I picked it up the lids where Taped to the bowls and I feared that the tape might pull
off the finish but I took my time and ran hot water over them to loosen the tape before I removed it.
I can learn.
The beauty is that it's a matched set. Oh sure, I've seen a piece of this here and there at thrifts, antique
malls, flea markets (sigh...remember flea markets?) but it's kinda hard to find a nice set all at once like
this, right? And custard bowls? Get out of here! Ok, so the only custard this guy's gonna eat here in
the StL. is probably gonna be frozen (no really, it's a St. Louis thing) or creme brulee...but I could see
eating a little ice cream or pudding out of these.
But of course I won't be eating out of any of this. I'm dropping it all off at my booth in The Green Shag
Market. Someone else will be cooking, serving and noshing out of these wonderful
Glass pieces soon. Heck, maybe not. They're so purdy that they might just end up being displayed like
a lot of the cook and service ware that I collect! And if they don't sell quick, the Girlfriend commented
on how much She likes them...so they might just end up back here in the end.
