Large nineteenth century clear blown glass stove pipe top hat c1880. Ground pontil base. Perfect condition. 11.75" L x 9" W x 6.75" H. Glass hats were almost as useful as they were decorative. Glass hats were blown, blown-molded, blown-three-mold, and pressed. The top hats were made in four sizes. The smallest size was an individual salt dish. The second size, about 3 inches tall, was a toothpick or match-holder; it makes an excellent container for cigarettes today. The third size, between 4 and 6 inches tall, was a spoon holder,the largest and rarest, 6 inches or more high, was used to hold celery at the table. The 3-inch size or reproductions of it are most likely to be found today.

I got a chair from my grandmother with carved dragons on it. After searching everywhere, I found the same chair on your website. I thought it looked Asian, but had no idea how valuable it is! I almost sold it to a friend for a hundred bucks. I am so glad I used your site to learn how much it's worth! Your price guide is such a great tool! Thanks Again!!
