Pottery and glassware are fun areas to get into and collect, especially since they can be very cool and functional at the same time. It could be something for the kitchen, the table or even the fireplace mantle! It always surprises me what I run into, especially when it’s something like this clock.
This very functional electric Royal Oxford Gibraltar clock that dates to the 1920’s. Not only does it sit pretty close to the wall, it doesn’t take up too much room on the mantle so that you can put a lot of picture frames around it on the mantle.
You can see this great clock in my Etsy store here, and another great item for the mantle is a football shaped clock featuring the Dallas Cowboys. You can find a post about the lamp on this blog here. Another still very functional item is this great ice bucket.
It features the TEA ROOM pattern and was made by the Indiana Glass Company from 1926 to 1931. The great thing about it is that it can double as a flower vase as well. You can see the terrific ice bucket in my Etsy store here.
