A Few Random Antique Finds this Week

  1. Gloria says:

    Danelle, that glass piece is part of a wine dispensing decanter/contraption… the screw-on part probably had a little valve on it that you would tilt with your wine glass to fill it up. The wine was poured in the top of the glass vessel, but it probably had an iron holder at one time. My Mom is from Austria and has a similar one, but they were big in the latter 1940’s-mid60’s in the era of adult social entertaining & parties at home. Many of them were made & shipped over from Europe.

      That is awesome! Thanks for sharing, Gloria! I would love to find the other pieces to make this thing complete again.

  2. Trins says:

    A fern would be adorable sticking out of that broken bird bath stand. It would h8de the jagged edges, which I’m sure you have already thought of. Lord kno2s you are the QUEEN of ideas. 🤎🤎🤎

    • Danelle Harvey says:

      I could probably put one of our new artificial ferns in there and it would look great!

  3. Kae Kae says:

    I think you should fill the broken birdbath pedestal with dirt and plant something in it! The glass thing I would try to find a cap for the little end and display as a bottle (even though it’s not).

    • Danelle Harvey says:

      Oh yeah, it would probably make a nice addition to the edge of the chicken coop or our garden with a plant in it.

  4. Anonymous says:

    Ps..another idea for the glass thing. Expoxy a clear marble to the little end then flip it over and either place in a stand that could hold it or wrap wire arould the middle in order to hang it abd use it for flowers or starts of plant clippings.

    • Danelle Harvey says:

      That’s also a great idea! I had never thought of a clear marble, but that would definitely do the trick!

  5. Karen says:

    Does the glass piece, by chance, fit into the broken bird bath? It would make a lively contradiction! Lol!

  6. Karen says:

    I think the bird feeder base would be cool filled with flags!❤️🇺🇸

    • Danelle Harvey says:

      Oh, that is a cute idea!! I hadn’t thought of anything like that.

  7. Mary C says:

    I use our old birdbath base as a gazing ball holder in our yard.
