This is a lovely antique blue milk glass ruffled brim hat shaped 'whimsy' vase. It is a gorgeous shade of sKy blue with a bit of white slag glass swirled throughout and a white tipped top rim. This pretty blue opaque glass was blown into a three part mold, it is smooth and shiny, and the ruffled rim has a raised, leafy floral pattern all the way around. Probably made around the early 1900's, I am not sure of the manufacturer - possibly an early Fenton piece. This delightful hat vase whimsy measures 3 1/2 inches tall X 5 inches across the SweetLy ruffled and deeply crimped top rim X 2 1/2 inches across the base. In excellent condition with no chips or cracks, just the usual characteristics of this old antique glass - a 'straw' mark or two, and tiny flecks of ash in the glass from the manufacture process. A wonderful, and versatile antique glass vase that you will love at first sight!
