What is this?

(1/2) > >>

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?

I have pics but don't know how to attach here.[/img]

David E:
As a suggestion it may be a piece of architectural glass, or something like an insulator as seen on Ian Macky's site?


Ian referred me to this board.........Marty

Upmarket inkwell.

Thanks, Any idea who may have made it, or where they are sold?
