I went in with this...
...and came out with this trio of treasures...
Let's have a closer look.
Since most booths inside look like this:
It's amazing I left with my head still screwed on straight, much less anything to show for my efforts. But I found the set of six matching silver knives for $4. I love how substantial they are, and the chunky, detailed handles (which I will polish for sure):
The two milk glass vases are both from dealer "NYC" -- seller of the now famous ice bucket. The footed vessel was another steal:
This one also has markings on the bottom: "E.O. Brody, M4200, Cleveland, Ohio." I know nothing about milk glass but the Internets sure do:
Brody Glass was first produced for The E.O.Brody Company which was founded in 1958 in Cleveland, Ohio, by Ernest Oscar Brody. Mr Brody was known as EO in the florists' trade. His innovative idea was to sell utility glass floral containers exclusively to florists and to market them through wholesale florists who in turn would sell to retail florists. Initially he started the company with only four flower vases/containers in his portfolio. These were made by US glass manufacturers using EO's own molds marked with the company name.
I now know the piece is older than 1971 since the company apparently moved from Cleveland that year, but for a buck -- who really cares! Since I had the model number I was able to find a few for sale online, and I think I did OK. At the very least I've found a couple of vases for my friend Spence's fabulous floral creations.
