Dear Diva Readers,

I’ve got a challenge for you. This weekend I received an email from an Antiques Diva Reader who inquired:

Dear Diva,


top:2px;padding-right:5px;font-family:times;”>Do you, in your wisdom and with your keen eye, know if we can find a 1950’s parfait glass to replace one that is broken and is part of an art work? It has to be straight sided and exactly like the one in the photo (above photos show the broken stem), but do not worry about the color – it is paint. I do not know if you take inquiries but your website is intriguing.

Yours Truly,

Jane Foley

  • Hi there,
    Thanks so much for stopping by and saying hello.
    The Derby is in May and all the shops in Lexington really load up on mint juliep cups.
    The prettiest ones that I have seen are at The Keeneland Gift Shop. Lot’s of beautiful “horse country” items year round. But also LV Harkness.
    They have beautiful cups and will monogram them.
    Your reader with the broken goblet might find a match at Replacements Ltd., it is one of my links. And last but not least, I got my blog design through Google and tweeked it with help from The Blog Doctor. He is also in my links. I go to his sight with all kinds of questions and get a reply by the next day. Hope all this helps. Love your blog too. Happy Travels.

  • i would love to see the “art work” this glass came off of. i am imagining all sorts of things and think it must be spectacular.

  • Hello Jane, I think that with a search of an online auction like Ebay or Ruby Lane you should be able to find a parfait glass to match your broken glass. In a initial search I found several similar – with a little persistence I think a match can be found. I’ll keep searching……..
