Can anyone ID this strange piece of glass on eBay?  Looks like a lamp cover perhaps?  Nice green!  Claims to have been dug from a 1930s tip in the UK.  --ian

Looks like you are right, have you tried a patent search as it is probably after 1920?

Seller also has a bird feeder.

I tried full euro esp for inventor "LEATHERS" and the only thing remotely like it I saw was GB191303665,  "Improvements in Stoppers for Discharging the Contents of Bottles and the like" by CHARLES CARROLL LEATHERS, but that doesn't seem right.  The GB esp search is still down  :( --  Am I missing anything?  --ian

Another glass + oddity with screw on bits of glass - could be the inventor.
