Pressed Glass Pram
« on: August 06, 2012, 01:36:55 PM »
Found this item the other day and whilst searching to try and ID it Google brought up an earlier posting on here regarding the same object, which appears to be a candy container. 
http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,16690.0/nowap.html

I have exactly the same item but I am trying to fathom why it is called a candy container as, from the images I have posted, where exactly do you place the candy  ???

Apart from the posting on here I cannot find another on the internet that resembles mine

the candy was in a bag strapped to the novelty gift item.

arrrrrrrrrrr I see, I would say it is a pram but I noted on the earlier posting, someone suggested a car.  It does resemble both when held at different angles
