This handy little dish is a rather mundane office supply, but it is a fun collectible seldom seen with railroad markings! It is a glass bowl, designed to hold a sponge in water, on which an office clerk would press an envelope flap or stamp or anything else that had a glue strip attached and needed moistening to use.

PRR is molded into the bottom of the dish, for the Pennsylvania Railroad. The glass is thick and heavy but clear with no cloudiness, no chips or cracks and no scuffing. The very clever design incorporates a raised rim around the base, so the bottom of the bowl is off the surface and can't be scuffed.

This piece is approximately 2.5 inches across. It has attractive flutes around the outside lower part. A very involved design for a simple item intended to hold a wet sponge!

This would be a terrific gift for a Pennsy railway fan - it's the best kind of collectible! You can use it without fear of harming it. It would be perfect as a desk item holding paper clips or a dresser dish for loose change, jewelry and the like.
