A 10" Crack

Sunlight swirls on the wall beside my Roost clock.
 

























When I bought this lovely amber crock at a local St. Pete vintage shop, I was most disappointed when I went to pay for it. The fellow told me it had a 10" crack, and that it was noted on the other side of the tag. We looked inside and out, turning it over and around and both is us could not see even the tiniest crack in it. I decided it was still a nice strong piece, and he gave me a nice discount on it, since he was sure there had to be a hairline crack somewhere.

I brought it home, took off the price tag so I could give it a good wash, and noticed on the one side of the tag it said.  $18.00. and on the other side "10" Crock. I don't think the nice young lad had a clue what a crock was and assumed it said CRACK.

  2. LOL! I'm guessing that not ONE of my kids knows what a crock is. Well, maybe CityGirl does - she's just taken up pickling as a hobby.

  3. Well I am as bad as he because I kept thinking you said clock instead of crock, and I kept looking at your picture of the clock on the wall wondering where in the world a crack could be on your clock. I was looking for a crack in the wall or on the numbers. Apparently we went to the same school.LOL
