Lefton bisque hands vase with roses

Unique and Graceful Lefton Hands Vase. Made of white bisque porcelain. Measures over 6 1/2″ tall. The fingernails of the hands are pale pink that compliment the applied delicate pink and blue floral porcelain arrangement at the wrists.  A sprinkling of gold color adds to the pretty pleated cuffs that form the bottom of the vase.

The bottom of the vase is marked “Lefton China” and has the Blue and Gold Lefton Crown with the words: “Hand Painted, Reg. US Patent Off.   # 1791”.

Fantastic condition. One of the lower green leaves may be slightly chipped, but in such a way that it looks natural. You will fall in love with this unique vase that is as pretty today as it was when it was made nearly half a century ago. I kept this vase in my dining room china closet–and of course it was never exposed to smoke in all the time I’ve owned it. It was never used for flowers, although it was intended for them. Be the first, and bring the hands to life! The perfect gift for a pianist, your favorite manicurist, or keep it in your powder room or bathroom to hold your rings–What a ‘conversation piece’!

Mason’s CHRISTMAS VILLAGE Sandwich Tray

Sandwich Tray in the CHRISTMAS VILLAGE (SCALLOPED) pattern made by Mason’s. It measures 12 1/2″ x 6 3/4″and is in Excellent condition free of chips or cracks.

The detail and colors are vibrant and beautiful! The more you look at it, the more you find! Evan a little white kitty on the porch of one of the homes! Santa carrying his gift sacks and a Christmas tree in his sled! Pulled by adorable reindeer! People carrying gifts and kids riding in a horse drawn wagon! Angels blowing on horns around all 4 edges! Red! Green! Grey! Gold! Brown! White and Black! Truly a lovely piece for everyone who loves Christmas.

Designed in the 1980s by Valentin Mandrajji and Barbara Marsten, Christmas Village has become a popular part of the festive season, brought out again each year, like a family tradition. Both decorative and functional, this comprehensive tableware and gift collection is as essential as the star atop the Christmas tree. Fir trees, little forest families, chocolate-box houses, and Santa Claus with his reindeer, swooping through the sky with a sleighful of presents all in brightly seasonal red and green – it’s a cheerfully rustic pattern. If it reminds you of Russian imagery, there is a simple explanation: Mandrajji is a descendant of the Tsars.

Fashioned in dishwasher-safe stoneware, Christmas Village brightens up the darkest December days

Marked on the back ” Mason’s Ironstone Made in ENGLAND, Christmas Village Designed by Marsten -Mandrajji” With the famous crown logo.

Vintage Early American Prescut Pitcher, Sugar & Creamer, Divided Relish Dish, Candy Dish w/Lid and Large Tray by Anchor Hocking

Hard to find Early American Prescut Pitcher, 1960’s

All are  in excellent, crystal clear condition.

Early American Prescut, made by Anchor Hocking, was designated as the 700 line in their catalogs. This pattern was made from 1960 until 1999 but some items were only made for a year or two and most pieces were discontinued by 1978.

Great for entertaining. It goes with any color scheme.

Pitcher is 5 1/8″ tall and holds 18 ounces.

Covered Sugar Bowl is5″ tall including the lid and 3 1/2″ wide at the rim

Creamer is 4″ tall and 4″ wide including the handle

Divided Relish Tray is 8 1/2″ long including the handles and 6″ wide with smoothly scalloped edges

Tray is 12″ long and 6 1/4″ wide with smoothly scalloped edges–the tiniest bubble is visible near the rim and what may be a nearly invisible chip near the edge. I never noticed it and only did after using a magnifier in bright light. It was probably there since I bought it.

These were all purchased at different estate sales over the years. For glassware half a century old they are all in excellent condition! It is rare to find all this in one place!
