Help me find a creative idea for this!


I won a box of silver plated items at an estate auction recently. Inside the box were a few incomplete items and this fondu stand is one those orphaned items. Can anyone come up with an idea of what I might be able to do with it? Although the lion head details are nice, this is not an expensive piece - so I would be open to pretty much anything - as long as it ends up having a purpose! Thanks!

Set a pretty pot or bowl of potpourri on the top and a tea light holder or small dish for a candle on the bottom, for a room scenter.

I might think of other ideas as the day goes along.

I would use it to hold a pretty dish or vase. It could hold two dishes, one on bottom, one on top. Turn it into a compote dish or candy dish that way. Could be very pretty for the holidays with a bowl of pine cones or ornaments set in the top.

I love the picture of your dog as a ghost on your header! I laughed out loud when I saw that! Too cute!

It would work great on a buffet table to hold a plate of goodies up above the other things on the table...like a pedestal dish.

Would a beautiful plate or bowl fit on top for displaying something pretty?

You could make one of these http://lagniappemosaic.com/photogallery17.htm
and use it as a stand for it!
Lots of work though!

That would be neat with a fish bowl on the top (with a real fish in it-like a terra beta and a little glass plate on the bottom to hold the fish food and a shell. Or how about finding a bucket with a bottom close to the size of the top of the sliver piece and glue it on (using something like E6000 glue to really hold- they carry buckets in the paint section of hardware stores in different sizes) then painting it all white, and using it as a ice bucket for fun with a something holding napkins on the bottom. Or the bucket filled with flowers :) So many ideas for that piece. The plates on it is a neat one too !

I agree with a pink bee...I think a fish bowl on top would be awesome and use the bottom to hold a pretty plate of seashells.
