Hello Friends,
This is a heavy piece of what looks like Scandinavian glass. In the shape of a face, with one side hollowed out ( for use as an ashtray?)
It's beautiful glass, chunky in a sophisticated way:)
Approximately 6 1/4 inches long, 3 3/4 inches wide, 1 7/8 inches high
Do you think it is Scandinavian?, I checked Iittala and Kosta, thinking it might be one of those, but didn't find a match.
Any guesses?
also, by the type of wear I feel sure it's a vintage piece,......60's or 70's?

    Thanks for the comment, Vanskyock24! I was just thinking, while looking at the photos, that it has a somewhat scary look. But when I found it, and when I pick it up it definitely gives off a more joyous vibe. I like the comment, though. Thanks!

    Budek, I had the same immediate response as Phil, that it is a bottle stopper to a blown square mouth bottle, or it might have been part of a sculpture, depending on what festival it was, they might change the "God's Head", that is a far reach, but it sure has unusual shape for an ashtray. LOVE IT!!! Mich
