Over the weekend, I popped into a local thrift shop, just to see what they might have tucked away and found the most amazing little piece. It’s a milk-glass footed dish with a lid. Doesn’t sound like much, does it? But it’s the lid that makes the piece.
It’s a hand, holding a small bird, and there’s a ring on the hand with a clear claret-coloured stone, and the bird has one eye. I checked the piece, and the way it’s being held, doesn’t show another eye. Not even an indentation for one, no evidence that one was ever there.
These two pieces have gold-painted accents on them, delineating the joints of the fingers on one hand. I use them to stash small items like spare earrings and cuff-links.
Creepy or fun?
