With the shop doors recently opening, what better time would it be to add a little structure to the ole blog?  A new column that will roll on the blog will be "Featured Find".  The column will showcase one of our favorite pieces from the shop and reveal a bit more of the history behind the selected piece. 

With Valentine's Day right in our midst, the first featured find is the classy, feminine Parisian Quadrant.
I can't get enough of the soft pink shade of this Depression glass piece - The type of glassware was known to be made of translucent or colored glass and it was highly distributed around the time of the Great Depression - note the name depression glass. 

The bold pattern in the glass is called "Sunburst" and was one of the fourteen designs created by the Jeannette Glass company in the USA.  The fancy brass holder adds an extra special design element to this featured find; don't ya think? 
 The perfect juxtapose match is found in the design combination of the delicate details and the bold sunburst pattern. Oui, Oui we love the Parisian Quadrant!
