img_0462Bone dishes are crescent-shaped dishes used as part of a Victorian table setting.  They were most popular from the late 1890’s to the early 1900’s.  They were kept at the edge of the dinner plate so the removed fish bones could be stored away from uneaten food.  Today you might reuse them to hold jewelry or soap.

The only one I have at Vintage Affaire at this time is the gold and white one pictured.  It was made by Henry Alcock & Co. of England between 1891 and 1910.

Yesterday, I brought down an empty wine bottle to use as a display for a wine stopper. Later I couldn’t find the bottle, and I went upstairs and got another wine bottle. Well, this morning something caught my eye. I found the wine bottle which I had unintentionally set down by a Texas Tech monkey.

I think these bird wine stoppers were to hold a candle, but they hold a cork perfectly.
