This is such a pretty piece, but we are not really sure what it designed for. It might have been used as a small vase, cigarette holder, toothpick holder or it might have held a glass. It is a cylinder with bottom and has bold 3-d borders of oak leaves and acorns. It is monogrammed L.B.B. There are some dark spots in the inside bottom which should polish out. Otherwise it is in extremely good condition. It measures 1 7/8" across and 1 7/8" tall.
