This piece can be found in the book of "Victorian Glass Novelties", by Jo & Bob Sanford. They state it was produced by the United States Glass Company, but no date of manufacture. It is a really neat toothbrush holder. T are 3 toothbrushes that stand out from the body of the glass and the brush portion serve as little legs for the holder. The bristles are finely stippled glass and t is even a pattern on the handles. The panels in between the toothbrushes are done in a cane design and t's a raised ribbon with a bow around the middle. The holder stands 4 3/4" tall and is approx. 2 1/2" wide. The above mentioned book shows this piece with a gold wash over parts of the toothbrushes and the bow tie around the middle. T is no gold on this particular one and shows no signs that t ever was. It is a nice shade of emerald green glass and the piece is in very nice condition with no cracks or chips. It is an unusual piece of glass and will make a great conversational item, as this is only the 2nd one I've ever seen in all my years of glass collecting. Winning bidder pays shipping & ins. Money orders and checks only, at this time. Thaankyou for taking a look...
