I'm at a loss on this piece. Was it cut down from whatever it was originally? Was it made to hold a small candle so you could see if you got out of bed? Or was it just a mug for drinking. Secondly, The top is smooth as can be, yet just plain crooked and uneven. The bottom shows years of shelfwear, as you would expect to find on glass this old. This is pressed glass and there is a large straw mark in the bottom. The handle was designed to resemble a rope. It was made in 1885 by Bryce Higbee in California. There is Uranium in the glass formula used. I am fairly certain this is the "Nail Head" pattern. Measuring across center top, The middle is approximately 4 1/4" round. Top opening is 2 1/2" across the center. Height is 3 7/8".
Amazing piece of history that displays wonderfully. Yet it is still a mystery in many ways.
Excellent condition
