Sometimes I like to revisit the past. With the quiet and solitude of winter there are moments when one can think about days that have gone by.
The Roseville vase pictured above was handed down from my dear Grandma...she had several of these pieces that still remain in the family. At the time that she purchased them they were very common...today they are considered to be a valuable antique .
Grandma would often arrange sweet peas, delphiniums and roses in these vases and take them to the sick and hurting. It was her way of bringing cheer to friends and neighbors.
The soft pink and blue tones in this particular vase were her favorite colors. They are mine as well.
The Roseville Pottery was in operation from 1890 to 1954 in Roseville and Zanesville, Ohio. It seems one by one potteries have closed their doors. They have become a thing of by gone days.
Makes me wonder if there is anything being made today that will become valuable to the generations to come. I hope so.
Thank you for letting me share this special piece of the past with you tonight.
