'Edwardian' ?? Tumble-up
« on: February 09, 2006, 12:55:08 PM »
I just bought this hand-painted tumble-up for my guest bedroom. It claims to be Edwardian.  Anyone know if that's likely?  And where it might be from?  http://tinypic.com/view/?pic=nfhbol    http://tinypic.com/view/?pic=nfh9g0
(No point in showing the base - it's just standard bottle style concentric circles)
It  has some water damage - as you might expect with this shape - it's very difficult to dry the inside!    :shock:  :roll:  But it is quite an interesting shape  :D

That's really pretty Leni :P  

I usually roll up a long piece of newspaper tightly, and insert it into awkward shape glass and leave it for a day or so.  It absorbs all of the moisture/condensation.  I use good quality kitchen roll in the same way if it is to hold drinks.  This absorbs much more quickly and I just turn the end around each time it becomes damp. :P
