Pink Saturday - Mayfair large underplate/bowl

Time for me to join Beverly and her Pink Saturday - that should give me inspiration to feature one of my pieces of pink glass each Saturday - and get this poor little pink blog moving along.

Today I share with you my latest piece of Pink Glass.

Mayfair Pattern - made by Hocking Glass Company 1931-37. Often referred to as 'Open Rose'
Large underplate/bowl.

I have had a couple of the flared bowls for a number of years, but have only seen one of these prior to this month's ebay win. It arrived from NSW, extremely well packaged and for now takes pride of place on my display table.
This is how the two pieces combine to make a lovely setting for flowers or for a spectacular food display.

I'll do my best to find another pink piece next Saturday. Do come along and see......

Oh you have such lovely Pink glass!!!! What a great collection. I'm looking forward to seeing more of it.

I'm starting a new weekly meme "Summer Sundays". It's all about what summer means to YOU! Maybe some pink glass? I think it will be interesting to see what everyone comes up with. Hope you can join us.
