Akro Agate Mini Vase - Royal Blue and White Cornucopia - Depression Era
This little vase can be used for a toothpick holder or tiny flower vase, perhaps for Violets. The Royal Blue swirl is a bit harder to find than some of the other colors which might be found on this very popular Akro Agate slag glass item.
After making their name famous in marble manufacturing starting in 1914 the Akro Agate Company located in Clarksburg, W. Virginia, started making small household novelties and children's items in the early 1930's. The novelty items were made until 1951 when the factory closed down. The Flying Crow mark will be evident on original pieces that came from the Akro Agate factory during the operational years ending in 1951.
The Akro Agate mark, the flying crow, is evident on the bottom of this small vase along with number 765 and number 4. Later re-issues of slag glass items made with the molds of the closed factory after 1951, should not have the Akro Agate mark and are reproductions.
The size is 3-1/4" Tall X 2-1/2" OD top rim. The base measures 2" X 1-1/4".
Excellent collectible condition. Without any chips, nicks, stains, scratches. or cracks. There may be some bubbles, pattern irregularities, straw marks (inclusions/cooling marks) or mold marks on old slag glass but nothing that would impact the value of this item.
This sweet vase is ready to go.
Thanks for looking.
