It is amazing what you learn from vintage bits and pieces!
I picked up this sweet little vase in a charity shop yesterday. I was intrigued by its stamp - Govancroft, Glasgow.
When I got home I
googled it did a bit of research and discovered that there the Govancroft Potteries Ltd were started in 1911 in Potter Street, London Road, Glasgow, and made, among other things, jugs for the whisky industry.
This little vase is only 8 inches in length, but I'm sure I've seen loads of these - usually green and usually much bigger - in various antique and charity shops. In fact, I'm sure my Granny had one (as did most Grannies, I think)!
It needed a good clean and now its ready from some flowers - small narcissi would look lovely in it - must get some tomorrow.
Hope you all found great bargains this week - I'm popping over to Flea Market Finds to check them all out.
