antiques speak


do boots come to mind when you hear the word hobnail? never fear! simply turn to the antiques roadshow glossary of terms to fill you in on the world of hidden treasure lingo, explained by the roadshow experts.

p.s. the unique ruffled footed bowl above is a fenton and it's going for a steal right here on ebay.

Gosh, golly, I love me some hobnail (preferably in their lovely aqua, but any will do, really.)

Thanks for the glossary - hobnail is, I think, one of the few terms that I actually know.

yes! aqua is my favorite too, the way the light hits the vases, especially with some fresh cut flowers is just beautiful.

I just love what you found. Aqua is one of my favourite colours :-)
