OK, ladies and gentlemen – looking at this Macro Monday shot the answer seems so obvious to me. Let’s see how many of you think so!
Of course, I’ve seen this object in its entirety, and I know exactly what it is.
Now, to be fair, I’m not sure they even make them anymore, which is part of the attraction for me because I do love old glassware – especially jugs.Â I have a little collection of old pressed glass, my favourite being that which has had several names over the years according to who the pattern was sold to; Krys-Tol and Davidson are two names that I know, coming from the US and the UK respectively.
This is not a jug, but it may possibly be Chippendale pattern Davidson glass.Â Certainly it has the clarity and the weight and the general feel … but though I do love glass, I’m not an expert.
So, what I do know is that it’s old, and it’s been around the block a bit. It’s a tad beaten up, though without any large chips or cracks (or I wouldn’t have bought it).Â It’s old-fashioned, it’s functional, and it’s possible that they’re not well-known outside of America, the UK, New Zealand, and possibly Australia.Â However, those of you who live in other countries can take an educated guess – it’ll be fun!
As usual, answers in the comments please, and I’ll be back tomorrow evening (UK time) to post the answer here (at the bottom of this post, not in the comments) in the form of a picture link.
Hooray! It was an easier one! Still not quite the 50-60% success rate that I like to aim for, but I was so pleased to see that so many of you guessed this one!Â Here’s the answer.
First with the correct answer was Dona from La Terazza, which is currently my favourite Italian language blog. Brava, Dona – hai vinto! Non c’Ã¨ un premio, perÃ² ecco un link al tuo sito! And for those of you who don’t speak Italian, ‘Well done, Dona, you win! There isn’t a prize, but here’s a link to your site!’
I hope you’ll all be back next week to have another go. Maybe it’ll be a little bit harder but not too difficult for you, and I’ll get my 50-60%. Thanks for playing!
