    This Art Deco glass vanity jar is unfortunately missing its lid, but I still love the design of it with its penguins on all four sides. According to Whitmyer's "Bedroom and Bathroom Glassware" book, the maker of this vanity jar is unknown, but it's likely European glass. The color is an opalescent green color, but according to the book, it was manufactured in frosted green, black, frosted pink, frosted yellow, and jadite. I'm not sure if this is the frosted green or jadite version.

    There's one for sale here with the actual lid:
