There was a time when a powder room was not complete without a dash of sparkle on the vanity. Whether you chose to use an apothecary jar or perfume bottle as they were originally intended, or  purely for decorative reasons, a bit of glass adds an air of elegance by the bath or near the sink.

Swedish Sensation

No one did whimsy quite as well as Mari Simmulson for Upsala Ekeby


This Swedish miss looks like one of her quirky 1950s characters that she featured on this cubist ceramic cube (6.5" x 6" x 3") decorated with her unique vision of surprised gals observing wild birds and vases. Surreal and wonderful!
