Thrift - Missed Kluk Kluks
I finally remembered to take a camera today and good thing too! These must have just been put out 'cause I looked on the shelf not 15 minutes earlier and I would have surely noticed them. Anyway, this younger lad was in front of me and I saw him pick them up. I thought they were Kluk Kluk by Holmegaard, 1950-60's. The large has a replaced stopper. He seemed positive they were 1830 or 1880 french decanters designed by... can't remember the frenchie name. The glass didn't look that old to me. I think, he's going to be VERY disappointed. Otherwise, we had a really interesting conversation about glass of which he is an avid collector.
Here is a photo of the green casserole that got chipped at the thrift store. Looks as if it's missing a rattan handle or something. Does anyone happen to know anything about it? I did manage to save the smaller bowl. Plus, a photo of the picture wall. The mirror has been calling me for a few weeks now and that lovely shell art covered in plastic to preserve it's beauty for forever.
