Definitely a knife rest!

We had beautiful cut-glass ones which belonged to my grandmother, when I was a child  :shock:

After my grandmother died, my mother threw them away - yes, that's right, *threw them away* - because they were "something else to wash up"   :x  :cry:

Hello,
   Leni, my Mother did the same thing!  Isn't that wierd?  Well, maybe just a co-incidence, but ever since then, I have wanted a knife rest.  


Anne, " A dumb bell for vertically challenged glassies"  Now, that's too funny!

Doh! :roll:  I should have known, having seen ceramic ones in the past - but never a glass one :roll:  I need to brush up on my dining etiquette and  will use it to rest my knife on before eating my peas :wink:  How posh is that!

Thanks Ivo, and Glen for the link.

Leni and Linda -  What a shame, but I guess if we kept everything - we'd need to live in a warehouse!
