    Looks like a cigarette holder, the kind they used in the old movies.

    The hole doesn't go all the way through. It may be some kind of perfume vial. But like I said it will not stand up on it's own, so that may not hold water (or perfume) either. I am really getting curious now. i feel like it will be one of those "well of course it is" moments when I find out.

    I also thought drug paraphernalia. I'm not educated enough on drugs to know exactly what sort or how it would be used, but that's what it reminds me of.

    Please do let use know when you find out the answer.

    Rhonda I think you might be right. I looked up Antique perfume vials and there are some that didn't stand on their own. I assume it had a cork in it of some sort. I will take it to an antique dealer here and see what he has to say about it. It sure is pretty no matter what it is.

    My first thought was it may be a handle for a crochet hook.

    I love old bottles and collect several types. When they were hand made they were not uniformly made so the uneven bottom is not uncommon for that era. It looks alot like hand blown glass. How old it is I wouldn't know. It could more new than you think. Blowing glass is still a large industry. But I think that is my opinion of what it is. However I could be wrong.

    For one thing the glass is sort of thick and doesn't appear to have any seams. Which makes me think it is older. If you see seams it means it was not hand blown but made by machine.

    K are there any markings on it anywhere? There might be some small insignia that might be a clue as to where it was made or who the artist was.
