Day 5 - Nana's Vase

It was so cold out today, I just didn't feel like getting bundled up to take pictures outside. So I went through the house to find things to photograph. This red bud vase always catches my eye so I decided that would be my subject for the day.

The vase belonged to my Grandmother. It is something that was always on display at her house. Many times it could be found on a wall shelf among her other treasures. Other times it was on her dining room table with a sprig of plastic flowers in it.

Now, it belongs to me. It sits in my china cabinet with all the rest of the items that are dear to my heart. I have tried to do some research on the vase but have come up empty. According to the stamp on the bottom, it was made by RJV Products of England. My Grandparents must have picked it up on one of their trips there. However, there is zero information to be found about the RJV company. I would love to find out how much this vase is worth.

But when I think about it, to me, it's priceless.

What an interesting and unique vase! I wonder if the Antiques Roadshow website would have any links to help you find out where it came from.

Beautiful photo--there is a warmth to it that I really can't explain.
