Eclectic Collectibles: Tea Room Vases
One can never have enough vases, especially when you stop to consider
the sheer variety of flowers available. Simple vases usually work
best for arrangements as it's the bouquet that is being highlighted.
But every now and again I get the urge to be creative. And a vase
that's a little more ornate is definitely in order.
The Tea Room vase is a classic example of Art Deco glassware. Crafted
in the depression era, Tea Room vases were made in only a few colours
and sizes. They are becoming increasingly rare as there wasn't an
abundance of pieces made in this design. Clear glass was the most
common, but every once in a while you will come across a stunning
Tea Room vase in green or pink.
