This is the only one I have a photo of. I know nothing about it except there was a twin that hung in my great-aunt's Rolls Royce. They hung on the sides and were filled with fresh roses every day. Many other pieces but not good at taking pictures. I will attempt to take 3 more of my favorites. All pieces have been in my family for generations.

    No Glass that I own was handed down.... Consider yourself lucky to have pieces from previous generations.

    These are called car vases . Most in the USA are pressed glas or even Carnival glass , this looks like cut crystal! WOW .The horn shape is great perhaps an Indian potentate owned the Rolls before your great Aunt .I have a pair of car vases on theis site .

    Hmmm, this pattern look's very similar to a pattern used by Edward Bolton on his glass boats made to commemorate the acts of "Grace Darling"

    This is pressed glass. Originally they were sold with a cord with tassel endings, and hung, to be used as a vase or hatpin holder in the boudoir. This one is shown in Cambridge catalogs from the early 1900s, but it was also made by another company before Cambridge Glass Company was formed because I've found it in a Butler Brothers catalog from the early 1890s.
