VINTAGE GLASS WALL VASE

   

Since my posting the other day about the entry table, I received a few emails and comments asking about the vases I had on the wall and wanting more info.  Above, you can seem them, up close, and filled with water and wildflowers.

I took a picture of them before I hung them up, you can see that below:
Vintage Wall Vases
I can't remember where I found these several years ago, probably a tag sale or thrift store.  There is no maker or mark on them but I love them.  They are about 8" long, and are made of a thick, heavy glass so they don't feel fragile.  There is a design of a bird embossed on the front of each (I think it's called a King Fisher?) and they have a hole in the back for a nail so that you can easily hang them up.  It makes them a great way to have a few fresh flowers wherever you can put a nail.

If you can't find any vintage vases, don't give up, they are making a comeback and are popular today.  Just go to Google and search for wall vase or wall pocket and you can find all sorts of manufacturers producing and selling them.
Sorry I didn't have more info, but I'm sure you can find something!
Good luck!

Those are so freakin pretty! I love that! They are the perfect choice for the side of the mirror. I'd have these on every wall, haha.

Nicely done.

I like the haphazard way the flowers have been arranged

Very pretty and a very nice idea. I have never seen anything like them before over here.

Thanks! It's one of those things I had stored away and almost sold on eBay or something cause I could just never find the right place. Now I have the right place, ha.

Thanks for stopping by and for commenting!

Thanks, it's hard deliberately making something look haphazard, lol.

Thanks, they are kind of fun, huh? I might need to keep my eyes peeled for more. Or better yet, make something myself, ha.
