A recent Brockwitz Discovery
« on: January 01, 2006, 01:46:49 PM »
Just discovered (in Argentina) a Brockwitz pattern that I have not seen "in the flesh" before. This lovely butter dish is in marigold Carnival Glass.

Has anyone else seen the pattern at all?

I have to admit that I have never been a fan of marigold carnival glass.  But the strong geometric lines of most European carnival glass is much more attractive in marigold than American carnival glass (at least to me).  This is butter dish is a wonderful example of that.

Die Erfahrung lehrt, dass, wer auf irgendeinem Gebiet zu sammeln anfängt, eine Wandlung in seiner Seele anheben spürt. Er wird ein freudiger Mensch, den eine tiefere Teilnahme erfüllt, und ein offeneres Verständnis für die Dinge dieser Welt bewegt seine Seele.
Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding moves his soul.
Alfred Lichtwark (1852-1914)

Pamela - many thanks for your kind comment. Many thanks, too, for confirming that you haven't seen the pattern in any other shape.

Connie - thanks again.
