For PINK SATURDAY I always enjoy showing reflections of PINKS in my antique mirrors.
 
 



Recently my daughter surprised me with a shopping trip to a new antique mall in her area, and there I found 8 of these gorgeous PINK glasses. Of course they came home with me!

Pattern:  Fostoria ~ Heritage PINK

I also found this little lovely at my friend's antique shop here in town.


Can anyone tell me what this was used for and what it is called.....
it is too small for a cracker tray, only about 1 1/2" across.


Please be sure to visit our sweet and wonderful hostess for PINK SATURDAY, Beverly of How Sweet the Sound. She will have a list of oodles more PINK for you to visit today!!

And don't forget to sign up here for my Cottage Charm Giveaway,

Hi Stephanie!
Lynn
Such pretty selections today! Gorgeous mirrors and glass. I cant be sure of what the skinny dish is but know that Victorians had a dish for EVERYTHING! Maybe its for something like olives? A mystery for sure!!

Annesphamily said...

Gorgeous pink stemware! Wow! What a find. I am not sure about the other piece. I thought crackers at first. Perhaps a veggie tray? Olives! Cherry Tomatoes!

Leann said...

Enjoy the weekend!

You had a really good day on your shopping outing. I love the pink glasses.

The Quintessential Magpie said...

Stephanie, I wonder if that little dish could be used for olives? If it's that narrow, it had to have been made for something small like that.

You could also put very pretty sugar cubes (those kind that are decorated) in it. Whatever you use it for, it's pretty!

And I love pink Fostoria. A friend of mine had a huge collectio of pink and green Depression glass, and she had it displayed in front of a window in her breakfast room. It was always so pretty. She would have been a good pinky, too! ;-)

Happy Pink Saturday...

XO,

Sheila :-)

Sandi@ Rose Chintz Cottage said...

Blessings,

Everything is lovely, sweetie.

Your dish is probably an olive dish being that narrow & long, Stephanie. Beautiful, sweet roses design.

Have a great weekend.

HAPPY BELATED PINK SATURDAY STEPHANIE,
BEAUTIFUL MIRRORS AND THE GLASSES ARE GORGEOUS.
I LIKE WHAT SHEILA SAID ABOUT A FRIEND HAVING PINK AND GREEN DEPRESSION GLASS DISPLAYED TOGETHER...I HAVE A LOT OF GREEN...I BET THAT WOULD BE GORGEOUS. IT IS ALWAYS A GOOD DAY WHEN SPENT WITH YOUR DAUGHTER. I KNOW YOU CHERISH EVERY MINUTE AS I DID.
HAVE A BEAUTIFUL WEEK
HUGS
SIMPLY DEBBIE

Simple Southern Happiness said...

Hello and what a post full of Pinkness, I like the way you used your mirror for depth.

I was thinking for crakers, you put the corner of then in the tray. I wonder if crachers were not as large as what ours are. Something like wheat thins.

Or (HA-HA-HA) its a holder for the Scrabble game, you know the little wooden tiles? Maybe that was where Scrabble first came from. Not Milton Bradly...

Lynn@ The Vintage Nest said...

The glasses are fabulous! :) An olive tray maybe? I love the fact that it is footed. HPS

Lynn@ The Vintage Nest said...

I just read all the comments....looks like olives are the consensus. Let us know what you find out. :)

Cathy said...

Hi Stephanie,

That pretty dish with the roses is for olives.

I would use it for anything my little old heart pleases, like maybe pretty pearls that are not in a strand anymore with some bling added in for good measure!

xo Cathy

CC said...

Happy Pink Saturday...oh my!! I loved the glasses and the tiny tray is so sweet. I don't know what it was used for, but I would have had to have gotten it as well. Your treasures are just gorgeous.. Happy Pinks..

Celestina Marie Designs said...

Hi Stephanie, Loved viewing your pretties again. Thanks for stopping by and your sweet words.

The bride and groom figurine is by "Blue Sky" and given to us from our son for our 30th wedding anniversary,2003. It is one of my very favorite pieces.

Have a great Sunday!
Hugs, Celestina Marie

Hi Stephanie! I love your pink glass too!!! Thanks so much for adding me to the sidebar of your gorgeous blog.

Becky said...

Beautiful pinks, Stephanie. Your little dish looks like a lemon dish to me. Those were made in several styles and use to serve lemon slices or wedges at the table.

The pink goblets are beautiful. My grandmother chose pink Fostoria for her wedding crystal back in 1929. There are two of the goblets and four of the sherbets left. I was lucky enough to inherit them. My girls thought it was really a special occasion when they got to use them.

Happy Pink Saturday!

Marydon Ford said...

Stephanie ~ Olive dishes range approx. $20 to $45 depending on the marks/markers.

Have a lovely week.

The Urban Chic said...

Stephanie, every thing is beautiful especially the pink glasses. I was lucky to find a pink vase with some very pretty designs on it.
Now for the little tray. Not sure but it looks like it would be a butter knife holder, but I am going to research it because it drives me bananas when I look at something and wonder what it is. Love and hugs, Pat

Although you only gave the width of that tray and not its lenght, I presume it is an olive tray.
Nice photos with lovely items!
