We came across this great local blog, Salem Photo Diary, the other day. Check it out for lovely pictures from our area, including lots from the Bush House Museum, Bush's Pasture Park, and SAA.
And speaking of pretty things, we have been working with our fabulous collections database to research and document objects at the Museum.
This beautiful iridescent art glass vase was one of many vases that came to us from the Bush family. It was made by the Quezal company, which operated in the United States between 1902 and 1924. We don't know how the piece came into the family, but we know they owned at least one other Quezal vase that also remains in the Museum's collection.
