Here is a very unique example of the glass blower's art. This piece looks a bit like hard candy wrapped in twisted paper. It is very thin blown glass with hand painted flowers and edges. It is in perfect condition with minor wear in the painted ends. These types of whimsical glass pieces were made to display and show the range of a glass blower's talent. Delicate flowers, feathers or lace pieces may have been tucked in the ends for display. It dates from about 1880 and is 5-1/2" long and 2-1/2" tall. A one of kind piece that charming as well as unique.
