    Thanks for your kind remarks! I had to wait a long time for the Djedi. I tried to hold off buying for a while at least.

    A pink glass or crystal Art Deco, stoppered bottled. Probably Czech. 1930's or so. No markings.

    Hednic, I appreciate that so much! Thank-you.
    These last green series make me think of how much I loved the Emerald City sequence in "The Wizard of Oz". I really loved that movie. It also was filled with great Art Deco design elements.

    Absolutely amazing kumquat !!!!! Congratulations
    Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

    This appears to be old. Enamel over very delicate metal. French? Missing a cork?

    It's hard to tell but inside the white flowers are sparkling Marcasite crystals.
