Last week the Old Salt and I took a mini vacation and went to visit one of my brothers at his cabin on Table Rock Lake near Branson, Missouri. During our visit my brother and his wife took us to visit a local museum.
I have to admit that I have visited many local museums and most of them are full of nothing but journals, documents and photos telling the history of the area. If they have any displays, they usually contain very little that I had not seen cross over my fathers auction block during my years of working in the family business.
This museum turned out to be a real surprise. Frankly, it is situated out in the middle of nowhere in a unincorporated area known as Golden, Missouri (population 846 ) fifteen minutes from Arkansas. And it is without a doubt the best local museum I have visited. They have all types of Indian Artifacts, Civil War Artifacts, and many great collections. The glassware collection certainly outmatches many collections I have seen in larger city museums.
I have chosen to feature some of the Fenton Glass for this weeks Mellow Yellow Monday. This is known as "Chinese Yellow" and it is extremely rare. I only recall seeing two other pieces.
Seeing all this beautiful yellow glass has convinced me
that this is the perfect color to paint my kitchen.
