The Weekend in Black and White


Glass Vase in Sunlight

This lovely Ukrainian hand-cut lead crystal vase was a Crystal Wedding gift from my father back in 1987.  It's survived several moves, and still looks perfect - particularly when caught by a beam of sunshine.


You'll find many more black and white photos through the links on the Home Page.

Love the curves here including that of the cabinet that
sets off the beauty of all the curves in a straight box-like shelter.

This is a lovely vase well presented. I have recently become more aware of the beauty of glass, and have spent a lot of time on the internet viewing many different pieces. Thanks for posting this one!
