~The vintage Water Decanter...

This is a gorgeous piece of glassware. This is a vintage two piece water decanter. In green depression glass.
These were used bedside many years ago... they were commonly found sitting on the nightstand.
I like the shape of this one... the square shape is easier to hold on to when carrying it. Not that I would willingly haul it around with water in it. :)  But it does not fell clumsy to handle. Or maybe I just have huge hands.
The drinking glass is marked with an enclosed "F". I have similar drinking glasses like these I recently purchased. But they are not marked like this one.
So much pretty in a funky green container. 

Be sure to check out all wonderful finds this week at ~Her Library Adventures!

What a beautiful set! I've wanted one of these for a while but never found one in a thrift...and didn't know they had been made in such a lovely green.
