I’m snagging a page out of my friend Liz’s “blog book” and posting on a family treasure I have.
This piece is not necessarily of some great value, but it’s lovely and has a lovely story (I think) of how I came to have it.
This is a cut glass bowl that my Tata gave me. (Tata is what I call my mom’s mother, for those who don’t already know.) She gave me this as a wedding present in late 2009. If I remember correctly, she said it was my Gunga’s, her mother. It’s a fairly shallow dish, even for a candy dish, but is one of the prettiest I’ve seen. I keep it put away in the box she gave it to me in so as not to have it end up broken.
Now here’s something I would LOVE to find, but fear all are gone or broken…
This is a MUCH older photo that Gunga had. This is a commemorative cut glass plate of President Grover Cleveland and his Vice President Thomas A. Hendricks. Granma Lila was a Hendricks and evidently someone had traced back that we were related to him.
If anybody knows of one of these in existence, PLEASE let me know!!
