Isn't She Beautiful?



My Sweet Mr. "picked her up"  ;) 
at an estate auction over the weekend.

From what I could find on the internet,
which wasn't much,
she was manufactured in 1901 or 1902
 by the U. S. Glass Company

The pattern name is 
"Manhattan"


Stunning details with
Gorgeous Ruby Flashing

and in perfect condition!

Just in time for a Valentine Tea Party !

Image how she'll look holding a
 Red Velvet Cake.
I know just the recipe I'm going to make.

This recipe comes from Young Adventures Kitchen (click on the Recipe Index Tab at the top of their home page).
Hop on over for a visit, so many recipes there and they're all sooo tempting and scruptious looking.  Drool!

Watch for upcoming details about my "Love Story" Valentine Linky Party Marathon.

Joining the fun at these parties: Vintage Thingy Thursday


Warm Hugs,
