WOW! It has been awhile since I have posted. I have spent the last few months settling in to a brand new city. I moved across the country to a smaller city in Pennsylvania. It has been a great adventure. I will be seeing a brand new coastline of vintage shopping. With the move my inventory is brand new! I have found a few amazing Mid Century vases, including a Redwing and McCoy! I also found a cool set of 1960’s Martini shaker glasses. They are embossed with classic Cocktail recipes. Very cool set in black and red. Finally I have some lovely women’s scarves that I saved from my previous inventory. With a brand new territory to explore I will be revamping my whole shop with brand new to you finds! Live a Vintage life by visiting JessFindsVintage.
I had been toying with the layouts of my shops item photos for awhile now. Daylight being the best lighting but not have the exact setup outside to photograph made me struggle with getting the best photos for my listings. I recently purchased a studio light box/tent, lights and borrowed a professional camera. With some failed attempts I was able to get some pretty professional looking listing photographs. Here are a few examples of before and after. I will eventually get all my listings changed over.
TWO Glass Decanter bottles made by Owens Illinois Glass Company from the 1940s with metal screw on lids. They have a wonderful swirl pattern and would look amazing as decanters, storage bottles or vases. They are marked with the Owens Illinois marks, a diamond with a circle and I in the center. This dated them to be in the 40’s or earlier, Owens dropped the diamond in the 50’s. They also have the number 25(which is code for the 25th factory which was in Indiana and 4, which stands for 1944). Below the diamond one has a 5 imprint, the other 10. From doing research no one knows what these numbers mean. info from here: http://www.sha.org/research/owens-Illinois_article.cfm
I believe it was a container for some kind of kitchen supply, vinegar or oil, maybe even wine or alcohol. Very cool piece and in perfect condition, no chips or cracks. The lids are a little rusty though, may want to replace, clean or not use them if storing liquid in them. Gorgeous for a shabby chic French spa look in your bathroom. Use them to store bubble bath or bath salts. Use as a vase with a single bloom. Very Pretty!
Dimensions:9″ tall with lid. 5″ wide at base
