White Wednesday... what is it?

What is it? Do you know already?

found at Blue Hills Antique Mall in Geronimo...

one of my favorite vintage glass patterns...

It's called "Silver Crest" because of the clear rimmed edge...

is it Penton or Fenton? I'm thinking Fenton Silver Crest... (I think the dealer was a little confused....) either way... it's lovely... but a little pricey for me... which is why I came away with just the photos... Down Here in French Lique...

I'm joining Kathleen for White Wednesday at Faded Charm... drop by and see who else is playing today...

It's just beautiful. And,....sigh...a bit pricey. But one must keep their eyes open. You can always find such treasures in thrifting if you WAIT FOR IT!!! Just keep lookin.... It is so feminine. Thanks for sharing!

You really should have taken that beautifull piece home with you.
It's Fenton glass and it's a rare piece. The original price on that piece would be at least $50.

I used to live near the Fenton factory so that was a good deal.

Go back and get it right now and do without groceries the rest of the week! lol

hugs

Pretty, but I like Precious and Roxy better.

Lovely but know what you mean. I just don't know why we can't owe everything beautiful...
Keeping busy indoors on this rainy day. Spring is going to be just fabulous! I hope each and every wild flower sleeping under ground is soaking it up.
Loves coming your way ;-)

It is extremely beautiful, but also a little pricey for me too. So, I will do like you and enjoy the pictures of it.

Happy WW!

Dixie, thank you for stopping by. When I was a lurker yours was one of the first blogs I was attracted to. Love it. The gentlemans chest does not have a mirror. It is Fenton and you might want to come this way and do some serious shopping. Blessings, Marta.

Hi Dixie,
I agree, that's a beautiful plate, but not in my price range either! Oh well, that's why it's so exciting when we find a great bargain, isn't it?
I read your comment over at Cindy's Romantic Home, and invite you to join Wednesday Gratitude at Heart and Home next week! I'd love to see more of what you're thankful for.
