Gillinder Pressed Glass was introduced by William T. Gillinder of Philadelphia in 1863, and by the great Centennial Exposition of 1876 in Philadelphia, he had set up a factory on the grounds of the fair where they made small marked pieces of glass as souvenirs. This glass shoe is one of them, and has very nice sharp details and on the underside is seen the mark "Gillinder". It's in near mint condition and measures 5 1/2" in length, 2 1/2" in height, and 1 3/4" in width. Here's a real piece of American history for that special collection!
