Meet My Head Vase Friends
Today I'd like to introduce you to some of my very favorite friends, my small collection of head vases. Maybe some of you remember the lady head vases that were so popular during the 50s and 60s. I am not exactly sure when they were at their peak of popularity; I do remember seeing them in the 60s. In case you are not familiar with them, these flower vases were made to look like women's head. When you put flowers in the vase it made a beautiful and fun arrangement. I think I remember that the flower shop I work in years ago had one or two, but not more than that at one time.
I simply adore these little pottery head vases; I think I have 5 different one. At one time I was able to give them wholesale and sold them on eBay. Last week, I decided to buy myself one for my birthday. I bought “Abigail, 1858” called Amazing Grace. Each one of the ladies comes with a darling story. “Abigail 1858” is dressed in a day town dress of green. She is singing Amazing Grace and is praying as women did in the mid-1800s.
