I always loved visiting my Grandmothers apartment in the Bronx. She had a beautiful home and she was very proud of it. She had so many pretty things which I admired and who knew back then that I would have so many of her vintage things in my home today. The G. Reeves black and gold barware pictured above was always a favorite of mine even as a kid. She used to have this whole set displayed in her dining room along with other (now vintage) barware. I used to love that she served us cookies and milk with these glasses. I was always wondering what had happened to this set of glasses and chip and dip bowl. My mom was sure she had sold this during the estate sale after Gram had passed away. So while out antiquing recently with my sister, we came across some similar barware and I had mentioned that I wished I had Gram's. To make a long story short... my sister had the whole set packed away in her attic and now I have it displayed in my dining room.
Happy Birthday Gram... Today, March 13 ~ A.M.G. 1904 - 1999
My Gram was always very glamorous!
These 2 pictures are favorites of mine!
