I found this item at a thrift shop for $3.00. The bowl is a beautiful green color with no chips or cracks.
The glass bowl is being lifted up by a cherub with a fish tail-- a mer-cherub!
I think he's made of brass. I've never seen a cherub like this before. There's no markings anywhere on him or the bowl. I've searched the internet for something similar, but so far, no luck.
I love his round little belly and belly button.
I don't know if you've heard, but the World's Longest Yard Sale begins this weekend, from Thursday through Sunday. I'm so excited! Needless to say, I'll be yard-saling all weekend long.
The sale follows Highway 127, from Michigan to Alabama, going through Ohio, Kentucky and Tennessee. Thousands of people set up each year to sell their items.
Look at all this glass!
I don't really like to buy from antique dealers as the prices are usually too high. Though sometimes I do get lucky. However, I love when I come across "regular" people selling stuff.
I like to take a few things with me when I yard sale: a magnet, (a magnet won't stick to silver), measuring tape, anti-germy wipes, sunblock and lots of cash! And, of course, the most important thing of all, my list of what I need.
This week I'm linking up to The Colorado Lady for Vintage Thingie Thursday.
Many thanks to everyone for visiting!
