|Cut Glass Antique Cruet Stand|
Oh, you aren't crazy about glass? I get that - me either. I appreciate it and think it's pretty, but I collect primitive antiques and cut glass doesn't really fit that genre, you know?
So you like vintage stuff from the 40s maybe? Like that classic seafoam green color? It's gorgeous and blends with both bright and soft colors. Here's a very cool fruit basket from the 40s that you might like. It has handpainted fruit with mica glitter under glass:

Now here is a fun plate that can go with other antiques or with graphic vintage pieces. A white ironstone plate bearing the handpainted image of Little Polly Flinders in classic, simple colors. The nursery rhyme verse follows the rim of the pate, and that's it. No other decoration - beauty in simplicity. And fun, too.

Take a look around your home -- do you have a vingnette that's kind of tired, or a collection that needs an addition? Think about color and form and not just age as you shop and buy the pieces you need . . . the time to buy an antique (or vintage) is when you see it! If you come back for it, chances are it will be living at someone else's house.
