this curious glass ( ? ) item. It weighs a little over 1 lb.
It appears to have been formed in one piece, as I can't detect any
longitudinal or circumferential part line.
The workmanship is of very high caliber & the glass is crystal clear.
It is 5" high, with a 4" diameter tapering down
to a 2 1/4" dia. having a 1 3/4" inside diameter
that extends 2" inside forming a bottom around
a convex protrusion from the other end.
There is a 1/4" hole in the center of the large flange end extending 3 1/2"
into the cone shaped cavity which more or less forms a vial.
My question is: What is it? http://i2.tinypic.com/1199c7n.jpg
I have pics but don't know how to attach here.[/img]
