Guest Book
Charming pale blue milk glass canoe-shaped candy dish or trinket bowl that has been hand painted with violet flowers and green foliage. The words say “souvenir of Walnut, Nebraska.” The lettering has been done in gold, but is lettering is worn. A rope-like embossed rim encircles the canoe. We believe this dates to the early 1900s, when urban families retreated to the cooler countryside lake resorts for summer holidays.The canoe measures 6 inches long (15.3 cm) by 2.25 inches wide (5.7 cm). It stands about 2 inches high (5 cm). It is in very good condition for its years. No chips or cracks. Nice gold trim around the rope edge with some wear but pretty intact.
