Paul: I bought it from a US buyer....so it was not 'pilfered' in person! LOL. And...the price just went up!
Actually, I am going to do an article about it for our Vaseline Glass club, and then it will sit here for a few years until I get tired of it. It was advertised on ebay as a 'trinket pot'. There were others that knew what it was, but I stomped them by 100% over their highest bid. When I bought it, I did not know what it was, but I knew it was special. When it comes to a vaseline glass piece, If I haven't seen it before (15 years of collecting and researching), I know it is something special. It took me about 48 hours after getting it in my hands and I had networked enough with others to find out what it really was. A person who has an extensive collection of GO TO BED match holders has a couple of cut green uranium pieces, and a collector in Texas (when I sent him a pic after I knew what it was), he said, "OH, so THAT IS WHAT THAT IS!" and he has a cut vaseline glass version. No one I have talked to has had or seen a pressed vaseline glass GO TO BED before.
