A rather ornate celery vase?

<< < (8/8)

SteveM:
I believe that the full name for what in English is called "celery" is "bleekselderij" in Dutch...bleached or white celery and with the Dutch penchant for lumping words together( a la German!!) you would get "bleekselderijvaas"
 :roll:

No, I'm sure that it's not valid in this case  :lol:

Glen:
Gareth and SteveM - thanks  :lol:  :lol:

Aye carumba! I'm beginning to think it's best to call this thing a Varze after all.

Correct - words are contracted: Selderijvaas.
Bleekselderij = celery, Knolselderij = Celeriac.
