Thrift Store Thursday

This was a really good deal, it is genuine crystal. I have a piece just like it that I received for my 16th birthday. I thought I would have a matched pair, but when I got it home it was about 1/4 inch shorter than my original one. I'm sure one of my DD would love to give it a good home.The shape of this vase was so unique. I polished it as best as I could, but I think that the silver plate has been polished off. It must have been well loved.


What a surprise I got when I removed the price sticker. It is engraved with the letter 'P'.
Cool.

What great finds from the thrift store. How ironic that the silver vase was engraved with your initial. Guess it was just meant to become yours someday. It will look lovely filled with pretty flowers...:-)
