Offered for your consideration is this beautiful glass boot on a pedestal. It is amber glass and has a wonderful embossed Victorian design on it, including the buttons or hooks up one side. It is boldly marked B & H on the bottom - which stands for George Bean and James Hurlbut, who patented this design on March 8, 1887, assigning it to the Bellaire Goblet Co. of Findlay Ohio (they were out of business five years later, after merging with the United States Glass Co. in 1891, so this boot dates to the short period: 1887-1892). Originally said to hold a perfume bottle, they were used as vases after the perfume was gone. A great piece of Early American Pressed or Pattern Glass (EAPG). It measures 5 1/2" tall and 3 1/2" in length. It is in great condition for its age - there are some flakes off the bottom of the base - one on each side in the middle and one near the front under the boot. Guaranteed old and authentic!
