    Hello,
    This lavender double trumpet vase was an impulse buy; just couldn't walk away from it. I did not find a mark, but upon wiping it down, I noticed that letters were faintly visible from each end. Further examination revealed that the two ends could be unscrewed and that the letters which were previously visible on each end actually spelled out the word, "PATENTED." No other marks were present.

    It is 10.25" tall, and its decagonal top and bottom measure across approximately 5" and 4.75", respectively.

    I am hoping that someone here may be familiar with the glass company that patented this screw together vase. Thanks so much!

      Your vase is actually a vintage shelf support used to support glass shelving, most commonly in old store displays.

      Welzebub and TallCakes, thank you both so very much for identifying the piece! I am grateful for your help.

      TallCakes, thank you also for the link to the page containing the patent information. It is indeed informative, and I am thrilled to actually read about the history of this piece.

      Both of you rock! Thanks again.
