Please welcome our guest blogger Saarin, my friend and fellow dish collector to The Little Round Table for a celebration of the "Festival of Lights" Dec 11-18. Leave comments for Saarin here on The Little Round Table, she'll be checking in as the posts come online each day through next Friday.
Jewish holidays begin at sundown the night before the official first day of the holiday. We like to wait until it's completely dark outside before lighting the Hanukkah candles, but sometimes I just can't wait!
Both vintage and post-86 carafes can be seen in this photo. The turquoise one on the left is vintage; the sapphire one dates from around 1996 and was a limited-edition color exclusive to Bloomingdale's that is now quite collectible. As you can see, the design is slightly different.
