It’s been a while since I last updated this blog, but it does not mean that I didn’t get new goblets in the meanwhile! I got some last week, plus I was waiting for the arrival of a package of Mariskoolis I had purchased at the end of August and, well, it took some time. Luckily they are all here now, so I can sigh in relief. Let’s start the picture flow, then.
First of all, I got two goblets in in-between colors, and I must say that this time it is particularly arduous to see the differences. The first is a slightly off Ultramarine:
Maybe the – ahem – difference is more evident here:
The one on the top is a little lighter than your “normal” Ultramarine.
Then I got an “almost Seaweed” Mariskooli:
Again, the one on the right is juuust a little lighter than the other. And of course, I have also a third one similar to these two:
I know, I know, this is sick, and I am the only one that can see any difference here! 🙂
But let’s move onto today’s arrivals. I all started winning the auction for a clear, older Mariskooli. Look at the shape of the upper part, how different it is from the newer goblets!
Which joins my Already Quite Old Goblet:
Then, from the same seller, I got for really cheap a matte pink goblet, which I thought would have been the same as the one I already owned (but it was too cheap not to buy it!), instead it turns out to be a different hue. See for yourself!
The one on the right is the one I already had, the lighter pink is the new arrival. Aren’t they gorgeous toghether? By the way, the lighter pink is also maybe 5mm taller than the other. Funny, huh?
Last but not least, the same seller sold me two really funny goblets. They are smaller than the normal Mariskoolis, but bigger than the small goblets, which I don’t generally like and collect. The shape is also off, but they are probably too old to be called “fakes”. I really love these, too:
So these are my last purchases. At this point I have so many goblets they are all crowded on the top of the kitchen shelves. I really need a way to display these nicely somewhere in the house!!!
