I am not sure where my mom got it from she is 97 yrs old and is not able to tell me. I wish that I would of asked her many years ago when she was able to remember things. I just didn't think about this jar when I was younger and the age of it at the time. So many questions that I would ask her now IF ONLY I COULD. What she tells me now is "you kids be good and I love you". This cracks me up. I am 60. She had six kids and she was a great mom with lots of patience. But, she still wants us to be good. I am laughing out loud with tears in my eyes as I write this. I wish the pictures were better ,but I can't seem to get my lighting right on my pics. Enjoy the pictures.
|This my cloches with silver and gold bulbs, faux strand of pearls, clear glass marbles and a few other touches for looks. I placed them in a crystal vase and set them in my cloches. I sat the cloches on a gold charger plate.|
|I stuck in a long plastic pik of snow flakes in the middle of the vase and added a frosted deer ornament on top.|
|This is my cloches empty. It stands 22 inches tall and 15 inches across.|
It has a wide lip at the bottom of the base of it.
It weights about 25 pounds
|This is the crystal vase I used in my arrangement.|
|This is the knob on the cloches. Can you see the air bubbles in the glass.|
|Here is a gallon of milk to compare it to for size. I have the cloches sitting on a gold charger plate with a glass platter under that. Allow for a 1 inch and a half from the height of the jar for a true idea of the jars height.|
Does any bloggers out there have some thing similar in a cloches that would give me more
information on mine.
Thank you for looking Humble Abode
