Rare Tiffin Novelty Co. Goat Figurine
In July of 1888 the A. J. Beatty Company relocated to Tiffin, Ohio, where it produced thousands of glass-wares weekly. Some years later, after merging with United States Glass, the company name was changed to Tiffin and productions would shift to finer, more unique glass-wares.
It wasn't until 1927, that the company's dazzling glass-wares were labeled with the classic gold "Tiffin" paper label. Tiffin glass has seen a large resurgence in popularity in recent years, making this rare treasure a truly lucky find.
These were used as advertisement and promotional items to be used for mustards, other condiments, or toothpick holders.
The pressed glass figure is rendered in astounding detail. As you can see, this one depicts a goat hauling a cart. It is portrayed with exquisite realism.
You can see a thick panel of glass between the goat's front and back legs, both sides of which are ornamented with highly dimensional flowers.
This creates a window-like effect and gives the scene wonderfully realistic depth.
The empty cart is also shown in lovely detail, with textural "wood" boards, nails, and wheels.
The goat stands on a beautiful oblong base which is accented with a wide rope-style trim near the top and elegant fluting near the bottom.
The piece remains in outstanding vintage condition, showing only a few light flea-bite scratches here and there, and some minor cosmetic wear on the underside of the base.
This darling glass goat figurine is a glass-collector's dream. It provides a stunning example of Tiffin Glass Co. at its best.
