HAND VASES AND MOON PRINT

I love this old print with the full moon and the reflection in the water. I beleive it is from the 1910-1920 time frame. It is signed L. Goddard, but in reallity it was two artist that worked together,  Rudolph F. Ingerle & L.G. Woolfenden. Ingerle was a landscape artist and Woolfenden was a photographer. They combined their skills to make pictures. Many of their prints were used for calendars and advertising. The hand vases were my Granny's. I have been referring to her in many of my post as Grandmother, but she was Granny to us all. The hand vases are marked U.S.A. and are part of my white pottery collection. These are special because they were my Granny's. Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out all the other wonderful post at Faded Charm.

  5. Hi Sherry-thanks for stopping by my blog! I came to visit yours and love the vases.
    My daughter is down in Virginia right now visiting. She just graduated from JMU and misses it and your area so much....it's beautiful there. I used to go to the Shoppes at Mauzy.

  15. Sherry,
    I enjoyed browsing around your blog. I see we both like to decorate with sentimental items. My husband's grandmother, who is 94 and stills lives alone, told me once she likes to give me things because I'm a "sentimental decorator". I can live with that! Thanks for visiting my blog, hope you will come back.
    Joyfully,
    Elizabeth Ann

  20. Sherry - What a romantic picture. I love those vases. How special that they were your Grandmother's. I, too, have several things that were my Grandma's. I love having her old things around the house.

    Thanks for visiting my blog.

    Blessings,

  21. I must say I have never seen vases like that. Jewlery holders but not vases. And that they are your grandma's makes them so special.

  26. Beautiful picture and I looove your hand vases, in fact I use to collect them and have one just like yours! I noticed you don't use your link and put the whole address...if you look up at the top of the page where you add pictures, you see it says 'Link', 1. copy the address 2. then type either My Romantic Home or Show & Tell Friday, then highlight the title you want to use 3. then go up to 'Link', click on it and in the box it gives you, insert Cindy's blog address there...and presto, it highlights the title & makes it a workable link to S&T Fri.! I hope you don't mind me helping, someone helped me out the same way! hugs, Debbie @ Cottage Hann~Me~Downs

  28. L G Woolfenden was "Nora" my paternal grandmother's first cousin. Her given name was Leonora Florence Weate Hudson. She was adopted by a Richard "Dick" Goddard second husband of my great Aunt Mary Jane - as a child and that explains the use of the letter G. Woolfenden was Nora's husband's last name. Might the print be something you'd wish to sell?
