Patience


HI Hillary,
One of your recent blog posts brought this group to mind. It had to do with having patience in your collecting. Now I believe that I do have a lot of patience since you are not going to find every item you're after always available at any one time. This grouping is an example. I had always wanted these spiral wrapped in the Lemon/Tangerine. Over a period of about four years I found these mis-listed as Venetian and Murano glass. From left to right you have Myers 6843LT, 6836LT, and 6838LT. I recently found the body of the last Gump's decanter I lacked in Peacock. The piece came with a stopper in Turquoise which fit into another Gump's decanter body that had waited patiently for this find for over two years. Now I have the body and will wait until I can find the appropriate stopper. Until then, I will enjoy it with another Peacock stopper I had in reserve. Patience does have it's rewards.
Enjoy
Bruce Specht
