This is a 3.5" tall light blue glass house, the bottom has slight conclave, very clear and crisp blue color.

This is my favorite for some reason, anyone know anything about it?  It's got great color!

I'm idly wondering if it's a deck prism / pavement light block thingie rather than a wee house? Perhaps Ian can help, I'll ask him to look in.

I would appreciate any help! I'm not too sure what a deck prism or pavement light is...but what ever it is I love looking at this piece!

Nope, not a vault light.  No ridges for gripping mortar, wrong color, and the angle at the top wouldn't work well.  Looks like a nice piece of decorative glass to me.  I like it: simple, iconic...

Thanks for the help Ian!  I don't know why I get such a kick out of this piece it is very simple, but yet the weight and color are very appealing to me....all in the eye of the beholder....but being in Florida it helps keep me cool just looking at it!

This looks very similar, except it is clear glass, and appears to be American.....have a look:

yes those do look like the one I have, except the color of course.  I wish she had said where they were from.  Thanks for the help!
