So do we get twenty questions about it? Is it made of glass?
Length? Off the top of my head, I'd say it is a piece of art glass. Sorry, the glare off background makes it hard to see.
Looks interesting.

It is about 8 inches long and it is made of glass. Amber glass. Hand painted and carved. Art glass is a good guess I think. It does not have a flat bottom so it is not meatn to stand on it's own. I though maybe a bud vase but no. it has little indents at each flower on the face like finger indents.

I didn't mean the people were antique. I meant young people who knew lots about antiques. HAHAHA

The person in the last photo is DH. He was helping.

let us know when you learn what it is. Very interesting looking. I wondered if it is some kind of musical instrument.

My guess is it probably fit down over a spindle of some sort. As a decorative cover. My mom was an antique dealer and I grew up in antique shops. But there are so many things that are antique or collectible that I have never seen. I haven't ever seen one of these. My first thought was maybe it came off of something and worked as a handle. but as it is glass that isn't likely.

I asked my mom and she hasn't seen anything like it either. I use to have a book on glass jars and vials. You might look online for something like that.

Another thought I collect perfume jars and it could be an old vial for perfume or spices or something like that. It reminds me of a science lab tube. Since it doesn't stand it probably sat in a stand of some sort.
