Whilst perusing my local Target over the weekend, I ended up in the kitchen/dining section, which is not at all unusual. However, this time I stumbled upon this nice glass trifle bowl from Anchor Hocking. Immediately I pictured it above my kitchen cabinets. Or maybe on top of a bookcase. Or filled with delicious figgy pudding. Ok. Not figgy.
Then I looked at the price tag. $10.50. What?! I knew that I had seen similar pieces at Crate & Barrel for way more--and not nearly as nice of a shape.
The Miranda. It is a cool shape, but it is also three times the price of the Anchor Hocking piece.
The Charleston. It's fifty dollars. That is 5-0. And it's glass--no platinum or rims or anything.
Granted, the one I bought is not pristine, in the sense that you can see a seam here and there, but turn the thing around! Sheesh. I think this would be a great way to display flowers, seashells, potpourri (if you're into that), Christmas ornaments, etc. You can't beat the design or the price. With this brand, you know it will last a long time. Mine will probably just remain a stylish space-filler above mostly empty cabinets for now, but it has tons of potential.
