It’s a gigantic snack serving apparatus disguised as a giant cocktail glass. This is a beautiful piece of kitsch!

Gettin’ up close with the snacks!

I love, love, love this lady head vase. It’s used to store pens and pencils here at “Willis Wonderland”.

    This glass snacks bowl is huge, a foot tall. I used it once and someone almost broke it so now it just sits pretty on the shelf next to a matching punch bowl and cups.

    I absolutely love the gold sparkles against the translucent pink.

    I’ve had the lady had vase for as long as I can remember. I love it because it’s so different from all the other lady head vases you normally see. She’s sat next to my bed for years because she looks so relaxed, a state I’m constantly attempting to achieve but pretty much just leave up to her.

    Look at that hair in the back!

    The lady head is one of my favorite things at Willis Wonderland”, I absolutely love it. I have to admit the first thing I thought of when I really looked at the back of her head was that it kinda resembled a turd.

    It’s still one of my favorite items.

    Lady head vases are very collectible and often expensive, sometimes selling in the four-figure range. I think the dreamy expression on your vase is lovely. The artist did a great job with her facial features.
