Hi, I'm new and I have a question - no photo
« on: April 01, 2006, 07:18:26 PM »
Hello,

I am new here. I'm not sure if this is the best place for my question but I'll give it a shot. The subject of my question is made of glass and I think it's pretty unique so I guess it can't be that off topic. Anyway, once I was looking in a home decor catalog, for some reason I keep thinking it was called "Windsor" although I'm not completely sure and could be wrong. In the catalog there was this clear glass flower vase and I believe it was used more commonly in older times by the French. I think that's what I read, I could be wrong too. It was two bulb like sections, one on top of the other and could be disconnected I think. Not only were they just bulb shaped but they had holes and (maybe tubes out of the holes to support the flowers from falling? again I'm not sure) for holding individual flowers , or maybe just a couple. The picture of it looked neat, the flowers were seperated and still all facing out to create a unique looking flower display. If anyone has seen or heard of this and knows what it was called or where I could find it to buy, please let me know. It would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much.

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 of worldly things moves his soul.    (Alfred Lichtwark 1852 – 1914)

The description seems to capture one of those oil and vinegar thingys.
