Time & Place in America
Remember, a Free Hand or Lead Lustre vase is more than merely an "object". It is part of our past; a reminder of daily life in America at the time it was made. This adds a layer of richness and meaning. It makes what you are holding more complete. It gives it a soul. For example, you might find something touching in the words from a single page out of an old manuscript. When you learn that page is from a diary written in the 1940's by a young girl named Anne Frank, everything changes. You realize how special what you are holding really is.
