New Acquisition

Yesterday Marsha and I went antiquing (as I like to do on Saturdays). We went to Lakeshore Antiques, the Forum Gallery, and the Ice Creamery (arts/crafts, antiques, and ice cream) all in the Niagara-on-the-Lake area. The first two were strike-outs, but at the Ice Creamery we found a beautiful Hughes Corn Flower double candalabra. It is pictured in neither Wayne Townsend’s nor Krista Taylor’s books. Similar candalabra in Krista’s book are priced in the $75-$150 range and I acquired it for $18!
At the same place (the Ice Creamery) we also got a mayonaise bowl and plate set (Hughes Corn Flower Candlewick). It did not come with a spoon, but I had one that seems to match. This piece is shown on page 91 (top picture) of Krista’s book for $60 – $80. I acquired it for $30.
