Looks like someone got rid of their "funny sayings" statues
Gave me a giggle or two.
Repeated my mantra - I 'm not going to buy anything.
Saw a bowl like this (but totally tarnished)
So proud, "I 'm not going to buy anything."
Then I saw this one
Nice shape, love the little feet...I could see this sitting on the sink in the bathroom with some doo dads.....It was in bad shape, but I thought if I can't get it clean I could maybe spray paint it....
uh oh, I'm thinking about what I could do with it...
You guessed it, I bought something.
When I got it home I wrapped it in paper towels soaked with Tarn-ex and let it sit for a bit. Then I polished it with my dremel stuff. Turned out pretty nice
|I am really amazed how the inside turned out. The surface was all roughed up and I though it was ruined. Guess I thought wrong.|
I looked up the company, San Giovanni, and it seems they mainly made real silver items, because I didn't find anything silver plated. So maybe this is a rare, unique find?
Judging by the shape and style it could be from the late 30's or 40's. At $4.99 it was a good deal.
Love the light reflections and am sure it will add a touch of somethin-somethin to our bathroom.
So this is my find, what's yours?
Aloha a Hui Hou!
