Silver Coffee Decanter....ideas please!
Here's one of my 'treasures' that I got from a garage sale! I assumed it's a wine decanter and posted a pic on the 'antiques' forum to get advice but someone said it was a coffee decanter and you put a tealight candle on the little shelf to keep the coffee hot!?
The glass 'flask' sits in the silver stand, but it's not attached and is quite heavy.
I got it from a garage sale for FREE! The sale was over (but the signs were still out hence I still went into the property.) The guy had put a heap of things in a 'free' box near his gate! I couldn't believe it! I love silver things so I grabbed it....with his blessing. He told me to browse while he trotted down the road to retrieve a sign! LOL!
I've washed the glass decanter and polished up the silverware and it's just gorgeous! (see next picture) I was thinking it was just 'too good' to be used in a garden totem or garden junk project but as it's basically worthless it wouldn't be a sacrilege to turn it into a quirky planter or vase?
any thoughts or ideas?
