So, what's this for and when's it from?
I have a bunch of junk. Knick knacks, I suppose, and I'm sure that's all much of it was ever meant to be, but some is useful. And I'm curious about most of it.
My fruitbowl, for example, holds fruit. It has a matching candy dish. Seems like an odd combination, but the fruit bowl probably wasn't meant for fruit and heck, the candy dish may have been meant for something else. Ideas on function are welcome.
But I'm sort of interested in where and when things like this were made. It's pressed glass with seams and bubbles and not perfect roundness. The color is painted on the flowers on the outside (no paint on the smooth side). What's this called? Is this one of those things you'd pick up at the grocery store in the 80s with a different piece per week? I could use a matching pitcher!
(And is it apple blossoms or dogwood?)
