Roseville I Cherish


This is Roseville I Cherish

I inherited the green pot and the two smaller bowls, but the vase I bought for an excellent price at an estate sale recently.
I felt so fortunate. The dealer pointed out it's tiny flaw which I feel strongly is less of a flaw than my inherited pieces.
After all... who is perfect?
My inherited Roseville came from my maternal grandmother, "Jean", who I love to write about.
I've often wondered... what is comparable these days to Roseville? MacKenzie-Childs??
Who knows?
Who cares??
I just enjoy it!

Today I am linking to Tales from Margaritaville

And if you enjoy it, who cares that there is a flaw? There is nothing perfect in this world anyway, so why not enjoy those things that make you happy. I'm glad you found them!!!

Hello...

Oohhh...you have a lovely collection of Roseville pottery! Not only are they beautiful but they are also cherished family treasures...the most wonderful combination of all! I love the shape of the shortest vase...very pretty! I have three pieces of Roseville pottery. My husband was going through his late parent's basement and found a box with various glass pieces so he brought the box home. Everything was covered in dirt...so much that you could hardly make out what was there. Lo and behold, a beautiful little Roseville jardinaire and two matching candleholders were there! A treasure that I put out each autumn to enjoy! Thank you for sharing your lovely pieces with us today...this was such a treat, my friend!

Warmest wishes,
Chari

Your Roseville is really pretty. I like the soft colors and the workmanship of each. The are so pretty they don't even need flowers to show them off.
Hope you have a good week,
Babs
