Glass

As you already have seen from some of my posts, I'm a hoarder.  Well the image for glass are 4 glasses that were used in my Great-Grandfather's pub, that he sold in 1910 ... so they are over 100 years old.  The one on the left actually has an uneven base ... so it looks drunk, before you put the alcohol in!  As to size they are all about 4 - 4.5 inches high.

It's amazing that they've survived intact for 100 years. Very cool.
My Grandmother and mother are all real family-history lovers ... so it's great to still keep them safe.
It is wonderful to see older items that are valued for their history and age. The first 3 look as though they are handblown; the one on the right may have come a little later.
The left hand three and certainly thicker glass and slightly miss-shapen.

It is just lovely to have some of the family heritage.
How wonderful to own something with such a history.
It is special to maintain such glimpses of history.
I love items with history, and these are rich with it.
It is great seeing such items and thinking of their original use ... now placed away for safety in a display cabinet!
How awesome to have such a treasure, with so many recollections bound to it!
It is great to be able to preserve this piece of family history.
What lovely things to own; such a good link to your family's past.

I love the history of the glasses. It must be fun to own something that old that is also associated with your own family. Lovely.
It is wonderful to be able to "protect" this piece of family history
