When Gran Nora died all the grandchildren were able to take something from her house as a momento. I had a few things including a couple of books, a necklace and this gorgeous vase. Of course, I now also have her dining room table and chairs which have taken pride of place in our kitchen.
I love the vibrant turquoise of this vase and it is such thick glass and weighs quite a bit. I decide it might come in useful in case of an intruder!
