Such an exquisitely beautiful piece of Victorian blown art glass. This antique hat vase is quite rare and one of the finest examples I have had the privilege to handle. It is of the finest quality and quite large at at 4 1/2" high and 7" wide. Based on my research these were made in four different sizes from small to large to hold various items at the Victorian table.. the smallest was an open salt, the next size held matches or toothpicks, the medium size was a spooner and finally the largest was a celery holder. I believe this example was for spoons. The shape is so elegant and a real conversation piece. A gentleman's stove pipe top hat! I believe the glass is some sort of swirl pattern as it has finely executed ribs or threads in the glass. The bottom has a large polished pontil, a sign that this was made by one of the better Victorian era American glassmakers. Condition is beautiful. This was apparently the forerunner for many other glassmakers like Fenton made copies in various types of decorative and colored glass. This is a very rare genuine antique example of this model, circa 1880. I saw the larger version priced at $750, so I have priced this one accordingly.
