It's a lot of fun photographing and preserving my Memories with these Heirlooms pieces started by my Blog Sister Jeanne! This is a Great way to preserve the Memories and History of the items you have passed down from family. Here I can always look at them for later in case anyone from the family ask, Where did that go?
Well...Here it is.
I keep these on a kitchen shelf. The glass is thick and heavy and very colorful. There are wicks in them and a turn handle which is just for decorative purposes. Made in Hong Kong. Not sure how Mom acquired these?
I don't think they were used. It's just nice to know someone tried to replicate a Wick Lamp from the past into a small modern piece. They have been in my childhood home since I was little. I'm surprised it wasn't something I broke. I'll tell you a little secret. I use to play with these too.
Just another Keepsake I decided to keep and take home with me and turned into a Heirloom.
