Federal Glass Copper Shield
« on: March 21, 2017, 11:35:58 PM »
I recently picked up this very neat piece of Federal Glass History and would like to know if anyone may shed any light on it.

When was it Made ??
Is it an Advertising Item or a Paperweight ??
Is it Copper or Bronze ??

It is solid, weighs 10 ounces and measures: 2 1/2" tall x 2 3/16" wide x 5/8" thick.
I have searched the internet and can only locate it on
I greatly appreciate any help you may offer.
I have attached photos that may assist you.
Thank you,
