The Beautiful Tiffin

I have been in love with the tiffin vase for years
not knowing at first the name or company...
and when I would go on the road buying for the
shop I would always find one but of course
there would be a price but nothing else...


until one day there was a little label that said
tiffin glass company.


Mystery solved.
I love that
they come in all different colors.
(note to self ,clean the windows,yikes)
I also loved these glasses they are a pretty
green to a beautiful pink.
I also learned that they are tiffin.
this was my very first it looks black but in the light
It's a very deep purple.
for all the history
I love them!

  1. These are beautiful Heidi. I think I only had one Tiffin vase like that at my store. It was like your last one but it didn't have colors on it. It looked jet black but if you held it up to the window, like you say, it was a gorgeous purple. I don't remember how I finally figured out what the company was. Thanks for the memory this morning. Happy Day.

  2. Very pretty, Heidi!!! I love the pink & green combination in the glasses, because they remind my of my greatgrandmother's depression glass. :)
    Happy Spring!!!

  11. do you ever see something beautiful but the price tag is a few pounds over what you'd like to pay- then you ummm and arrr and then go back to the shop and its snapped up by a confident rummager...well, that was me... i saw a lovely vase similar shape and size to your lovely collection of Tiffin glass, it was a pinky mist with rose pattern- ohh how i wished id just bought it...but at 10 pounds it seemed just a little too pricey for charity shop wares.

    love your delightful treasures heidi- you have so many exciting and beautiful treasures ;0)
