    This is now a mystery to me. I always thought it was a toothpick holder, until a friend saw it the other day. My friend insisted it was an antique "drinking glass" for a German or French bisque doll. It is approx 2" tall and made from light Amber or dark yellow glass, with a removable brass ring with a embossed filigree design. I would love to hear from anyone who knows what it is.

      Size? It's hard to tell scale without a reference. Can you take a pic of the inside of the filigree? Any marks on the filigree? (You will have to look closely on bottom and around bottom edge.)

      There are no marks but it does appear that it may have been silver plated at one time.....
