Pressed glass top hat

It's about 1.5 inches high. A glass salt perhaps?


I was just thinking, I mean I know it is as Sid has shown ref ebay item,  but ... the eBay one is 3" high and Tigers is 1.5" high.

If that is right Tiger then these must have come in different sizes?

You're right Adam, my hat is around half the size of the one on ebay.  :)

Hello:

My initial thoughts are that perhaps the ebay or your measurement is off.  But we don't have the pleasure of having them all side by side to determine that.

So if we accept both measurements as being correct, we have a puzzle, don't we?  

What would the purpose of your hat be?  The design of your hat is a match (sorry about the pun :lol:)  for the condiment set which was likely produced at somepoint after 1950.  This time frame would rule out match striker and  at 1.5 inches toothpick holder is out as well.  An open salt is also very unlikely.

Thoughts?

Sid

Could TC's have been either a sample or a child's tea set version perhaps?
