Mid Century Cased Glass


I will never have the
pricey, desired, holy grail
of Scandinavian glass.....
but I have a few original, 
and a few good pieces.
The colors of the real deal
are just 
faaaaaantastic,
and hard to dismiss
or copy.

Cased Glass:

: glass consisting of two or more fused layers of different colors often decorated by cutting so that the inner layers show through —called also case glass
Behold.

(These pictures are from google image search
for 'Scandinavian Mid-Century Glass'.

Another Alsterfors

My humble collection 
gleaned from
DI, Etsy, and Goodwill


Kinda in love with the pure colors
of this glass.
Don't need the pricey ones,
enjoy the few humble ones I have!
But appreciate their artistry!

I have a blog and flickr friend
with a blog and Etsy store
named deedee14.
She is from Oakland,
and has EXQUISITE
Mid-Century Modern taste.

Like I said,
she sells stuff
and if I had money for fun stuff,
I would buy her out.
Totally out.

Let's go on a shopping spree!


Yippee!

Love to all you little
whippersnappers
out there.

You rawk my world!
