Very well worked cranberry over opalescent milk glass, with a nice amber applied handle and crest. The bottom is ground smooth with a polished pontil. Such little baskets were used to hold money and small gifts at weddings, but often found themselves as heirlooms and decoratives over the years. This was obviously done by one of the better glass houses - the quality is quite excellent. It's a perfect beauty, no issues, measuring 6 and 1/4 inches tall and 5 and 1/2 inches in diameter at the widest point of the rim. It's wonderful!
