Cranberry Swirls

Requested by sweet Susan over at “Writing Straight From The Heart” , here are more of my treasured pieces of cranberry glass.
This tall ewer in the back is translucent at the bottom.  It is a perfect example of why the name “opalescent” is used to describe this kind of art glass.
The swirls of cranberry and white make this piece unusual.
I remember one lady I met at an antique show because she taught me a very important lesson early on.
Never, never, ever use the delicate handle to pick up a piece of art glass”.   I remember this because she was adamant about her advice.    It is wonderful advice and I thank her to this day.

I accented this glass with my beautiful vintage Holy water bottle. It is one of my favorite keepsakes.

I had to show you the bottom.  It is just as beautiful as the rest of the piece.
