Art glass is one of the housewares I'm imagining in my sweet contemporary romance heroine's (hereafter called Clare, cause that's who she is!) collectibles shop. I got sidetracked in my search for 1960s stuff by this beautiful photo. Thanks to Reciprocity for posting to Flicker (click the link, there's background text). Gorgeous.
Sidenote: Pratchett's Discworld has made me a real fan of turtles and the it's-turtles-the-whole-way-down story.
