For me, there is nothing more chic and sophisticated than a beautiful crystal vase holding a neat and structured posy of single variety flowers.
The sharpness and clarity of the thick glass gives of a feeling of ultimate luxury and timeless elegance. Simply striking.
However, my budget doesn’t quite stretch as far as my taste does. Fortunately, up to 70% of crystal vases are re-gifted from weddings. Which means that there is a great supply of fabulous vases on eBay for you to crystallise on! Many of which are still in their boxes.
I recommend searching for your perfect vase by using high end crystal brands such as Waterford, Wedgewood, Baccarat, Orrefors, Kosta Boda in the search engine on eBay or even Gumtree. Make sure that you read the description carefully and check postage costs as crystal is heavy.
I picked up these two beauties from eBay, paying less than $50 for both, plus they buyer lived nearby, so I saved on postage as well.
