Antique and vintage glass rolling pins vary from simple clear examples, to the famous Bristol Blue colours, to elaborate multi-coloured Nailsea examples and to examples with motifs and words. They were often hung upon parlour walls and prized as emblems of good luck, only to be taken down when pastry was ceremoniously prepared for a wedding feast. Such pastry was believed to bring good fortune to all who ate it. Nautical themes were also common on rolling pins with sea-faring motifs, ships, mottos and inscriptions. These would be applied as painting, gilding and printing. Rarer examples include anti-slavery messages, and those marking special events such as coronations. They were hollow in form and often served as dual purpose for holding salt. They would have had a cord and would have been hung in the kitchen or by a fire to keep the salt dry.

The production of a Nailsea glass rolling pin
From the last decades of the eighteenth century, right though the Regency, a vast number of decorative rolling pins were made in Britain. They were all made of glass and most were produced in the many glass works located in the area around the city of Bristol, in southwestern England. And all of those glass rolling pins were hollow. Which is not their secret, nor was the identity of their various contents, during the Regency. Though such details may well be unknown to many people living in the twenty-first century. Despite the mundane household purpose to which these rolling pins could be put, Regency romance authors may find them an ideal, and historically authentic, symbol of love.

We believe this rolling pin was made in either the s or s. He was a glassblower around the late s and lived in East Stroudsburg, Pa. The piece has a hole-in-one end, which I think was where a cork might be placed.
What a fascinating response as always. A Mormon will tearfully and emotionally recite whichever lesson they need at the given moment. You should ask Him what you should do, as no one else can see the end from the beginning and no one else has perfect love for you and for your potential husband. She wants the eternal temple marriage and you will be her long term project TL;DR I considered ending my marriage of Save yourself pain by getting out before it gets harder. You will join the church. During those years, I think we had about 5 dinner dates. I don't want to give up as I think it is still the stress of the exams that is motivating her response and that given time, we could work things out and have a very special and loving relationship.
