VASES: Flowers should be complimented by the perfect vase. When the vase is empty it will still grace a room, naturally!
BOWLS & PLATES: Serving bowls, soup bowls, punch bowls. Dinner plates, chargers, decorative plates. Bowl? PLate? Buy both!
POTS & JARS: Both round, both containers, one has handles and lids, the other doesn't. Does it matter what you call it?
FIGUERINES: Usually made of clay, ivory or stone. Often animals, birds or deity. Painted, glazed or polished. You choose!
