    Just for kicks... This link is a picture from the 1930's and shows glass shifter knobs on display. http://www.shorpy.com/node/5708?size=_original#caption

    I believe this shifter knob could be from HouzeX Glass Company. They made ashtrays for automobiles from the 1930's-50's. So it could be possible they made shifter knobs. If you look at this link, go to the picture with the last grouping, and look for the 3rd example from the left. I believe the colour is a match. Hope the information helps.

    I had another peek at the picture with the shifter knobs on display and apparently the picture is from 1925!
