No doubt about it, 2009 is the year of green. From eco-friendly decorating ideas to "Green Weddings," to tote-your-own grocery bags, everyone seems to be making a conscious effort to reduce waste while maintaining their personal style. But recycled bamboo can only go so far, no?
Silversmiths of centuries past--to their credit--were committed to producing art with staying power. Their craft champions long-term usability and therefore stands in opposition to the apparent evils of disposable convenience.
So how about a small sample of vintage décor direct from the online catalog of Nelson & Nelson Antiques? Carrying out the green theme is this lovely cylinder-shaped Antique American Sterling Silver Overlay vase, decorated with a pansies and leaves design with delicate carved openings and etchings on both the flora and the fauna.

Please note: most, but not all, of Nelson & Nelson’s inventory can be viewed in the online catalog. Please visit us at our Manhattan location at at 979 Third Avenue between 58th and 59th street on the Fifth floor, Showroom 507.
