If anyone can tell me anything about this green vaseline 3 x 3 1/2 in heart shaped box I would be very greatful  I have no idea what date or who made it all I know is that it has not had any of the pontil marks ground off.  I am a beginner so if that term is'nt right please excuse me. I am from the United States
 am a starting collector. And I am from the United States. (Mississippi)

That's yellow-green!  It's American, made in the mid to late 1990s and by either Boyd or Mosser.  Visit http://www.vaselineglass.org for more on vaseline glass.  As to pontils, they occur on blown glass not molded glass and this trinket box is definitely molded.

I am the webmaster for vaselineglass.org, and I can tell you it is not at that site.  Boyd made a similar one, but their version has a little pattern around the upper rim.  I think Mosser Glass, Cambridge, Oh made this version.  If it was not them, then it was Summit Glass.  In either case, it is a new piece.  They sell on ebay for about $10-15.

Dave,  I didn't say the box was on the VGCI site--I just suggested she visit it for clear, well researched info on vaseline glass--American style.

no accusation intended.  just in this world of instant gratification and GOOGLE, people tend to think they can find anything - anywhere.  Just wanted to let the OP know.
