"The Imperfect Ornament: 1890's?, Northern Virginia" (c) 2013 Stu Jenks
Found this ornament on a shelf I was cleaning this morning. Another of the old Saum family ornaments. Amazing light in weight, and check out the dent on the right side. That happened when the blown glass cooled, I presume. A beautifully inperfect object. Inperfection makes many things, many people, more beautiful, don't you think?
