An unusual shape vase or wine cooler that looks almost like a n oversized cup. At 10in high, oversized is an understatement! Most likely intended as a vase, glass is of obvious quality and a beautifully done flower bloom and leaves are handpainted on one side. No chips or cracks. If you are doing a retro room, this would be ideal for use and it almost has a period look.
This book has just about any recipe that you could ever want, even Elephant Stew. Here is the recipe for Elephant Stew. You will need 1 Elephant, 50 pounds of salt, 25 pounds of pepper gravy, and 2 rabbits. Cut elephant into bite sized pieces. This will take about two months. Season with salt and pepper and add enough of your favorite gravy to cover. Cook over low heat for 4 weeks. Serves about 3,000 people. If more is expected, add the rabbits. However, do this only if necessary, since most people do not like hares in their stew.

Many artists traveled throughout the US during the early part of the 20th century and recorded their impressions. This painting has a simply wonderful feel about it of going into the mountains for a walk, surrounded by flowers and trees. The clearing is a road leading to any place the viewer would like to go. This is one of the prettiest landscapes you could hope to find, oil on canvas, framed in a modern lemon gold frame with glass on top to preserve the surface. The scene is timeless, no phone wires, satellite dishes, or modern intrusions. The basic colors are lush green of the trees, blues of the skies and ground coverings. Age of this painting is close to 100 years. Found in Asheville, North Carolina and it is not far from where it was probably painted.
What a wonderful print, The Highland Shepherd Boy by George Stinson & Co. of Portland, Maine, this image shows a barefoot Scottish lad in a field of sheep with a church spire in the background. He is shown playing a bag pipe and wearing a hat with ribbons and flowers. The overall color pallete is green and the best part is a dog laying at the feet of the child. The pastoral and bucolic look of this print is simply appealing. The frame is probably the original and is a scrolled Victorian type with minor damage that has been somewhat repaired to the corners and edges, but the damage only adds to the antiquity and appeal of this. When you see this print, it makes you think of nostalgia, and what is not found today. Victorian lovers would love this. Even the glass is original with bubbles and waves.

Gibson Girls were the vogue in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The lady shown here in this circle pin with a rope or cable edging has a nice neckband with a pin having a drop as added ornament. Her hair is upswept in the classic Gibson Girl fashion. Her cheeks are rouge touched and she is attractive. No doubt, your Grandmother. There memorial pins were in fashion and worn both by women and men around the turn of the century, ladies wore images of their Mothers or sisters or friends, men wore their wives, girlfriends and mistresses, although usually not the wife and mistress at the same time. The frame appears to be brass or heavy gold plate, will shine and clean further, but looks as though the pin was a gift from someones grandparents jewel box. Very classic and tailored in appearance. This is ready to take home and wear today, the pin on the back is original and in good condition.
