Description

Have to admit I don't know much about this curious little item. Probably a toothpick holder or maybe a vase for holding miniature sweetpea flowers. Made in opaque Jade green glass, which glows bright green in UV light due to the small amount of Uranium in the glass mixture, a feature which has become very collecable these days. Date wise, I'd say somewhere between 1900's - 1930's (best guess), so Victorian or maybe Art Deco. Small shallow concave ground + polished pontil mark to the base, a good indicator of quality.

Size

Measures approx 2.5 inches tall by 3.25 inches in diameter at widest point.

Condition
