Victorian glass novelty coal bucket souvenir, hand-painted

This Victorian glass novelty in the shape of a coal bucket was made by the U.S. glass co., circa early 1890's. This Victorian glass novelty is a light shade of yellow glass with hand-painted enameled daisy-type 'dot' flowers, and you can faintly read 'souvenir of Boston' if you look at just the right angle. This antique glass coal bucket novelty souvenir measures approx. 2 inches tall X 4 inches long and is in very GOOD condition, with only minor flakes/roughness - it still retains the original wire bail handle and the enameling is still great! (A surface 'annealing line' can be seen in one photo - very typical in antique glass, it is not a crack or damage - just a surface 'wrinkle' produced when the item cooled.) Shown in "Victorian Glass Novelties" by Bob & Jo Sanford, on page 146. This light yellow color is not pictured and may be a bit more rare. Definitely Not a newer reproduction - it has plenty of wear on the very bottom/base and it does glow a yellow-green under uv blacklight as further proof of age! A fabulous Victorian glass treasure!
