When opportunity knocks ....

My Oppy threw this Georg Jensen stainless steel 'Bloom Bowl' at me today.
I spied it from across the room, sitting with all the other bowls, my heart leapt,
"I know that shape" ...... as soon as I held it I knew it was the real thing.
I'm not a fan of stainless steel, cept when it has Georg Jensen engraved on it.
I don't know what it is about Danish Design, there's just something about
the forms, the timelessness of each piece and the way they just
'hold their own' in a space.
And I know it's rude to talk about money,
but I paid $8.00.

OMG what a total bargain!!! Good spotting! It's nice to know that Oppies still sell good stuff rather than having things pillaged by dealers before they even get to the store!
