Sometimes you just have to grit your teeth and open your wallet.  I hadn't really looked at the design on it closely before.Your husband likes it because it reminds him of you?

He HATES the piece.  If anything about it reminds him of me, it's probably the thickness and nothing else. :pb:

But I think it's a fantastic addition to my collection.  I've got no regrets.  :smg:

Where are you going to display it?

I have visions of it in one of those small windows you get at the top of bathroom doors, the kind that let light penetrate right through the house. You'd get to admire it from both sides!
But you'd need a few of them - I can imagine a collage of bricks all with different images.......

Lovely idea, Sue...  unfortunately, we don't have a window at the top of the bathroom door, and I don't think my husband would be particularly pleased if I asked him make a hole above the frame to accommodate a few glass bricks. 

He wasn't particularly pleased when I asked him to devise a 'foot' for my brick with a light in it...   ::)

Nice find. I have about 50 of their current production http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,42068.0.html might be worth getting in touch with the factory and getting more information on their advertising pieces. Who knows they might even give you a more recent one  ;)  They would probably still have the plate inserts and panel moulds in store - would be nice to get pics of the insert to see how many designs were produced. Probably the main reason you do not see so many is that most will still be with the original owners and I doubt that they bothered to put coin slots in all of them. The assumption in ABI that they were all money boxes is  hard to accept! Rarity of glass under 50 years old is impossible to ascertain unless you know the actual production figures.
