V is for vintage vacation! I couldn’t resist doing a second V post because I just love the graphics on this Sovereign, King of All Toffees tin, c. 1930s. @megillicutti Playing along in the A to Z because #tqitb #thequestisthebest  #vintagetin #vintagegraphics #vintagetoffeetin #vintagevacation #fridayvintagefavourite #fridayvintagefavourites #visfor #visforvintage
A day for chasing butterflies! The simple summertime pursuits of Victorian children and wispy plants lend so much charm to Mary Gregory glass. #marygregoryglass #oldglass💚 #victorianglass #chasingbutterflies #oldgreenglass #antiquegreenglass #💚glass
V is for vintage Vaseline glass so very vibrant. V is also for Victorian vignettes and volumes about Queen Victoria and Venice. Playing along in the A to Z with @megillicutti because #tqitb #thequestisthebest I can’t believe we’re at ‘v’ already! Going to miss this game.

S is for stanhopes and stereoview cards. Stanhopes are souvenir novelties that were purchased at fairs or travel sites. They have a tiny fish eye lens in them. Looking into the lens with the light shining behind reveals a micro photo of a special scene or building. The tiny binoculars are a souvenir scene of Blackpool and in the umbrella etui is a picture of the Cristal Palace. Among the stereoview cards are many scenes including Chimney Rock, Land’s End, Niagara Falls and Prospect Park, Brooklyn. So stanhopes, stereoview cards, scenes, souvenirs and sites are set in my IG square today.

R is for relief. Relief carved and relief moulded. The word relief comes from the Latin ‘relevo’ meaning ‘to raise’. The relief carved panels are from the late 18th C and sold at the Christie Show in May. The relief moulded pitcher of Diana (bottom left) is stamped Villa Pottery, C 1850.  In the upper right corner is a lovely relief moulded pitcher with cherubs and angels.
