    On a slow day several weeks ago I found this little jar or vase. It is about 4.75" high x 4.25" in diameter at its widest. I think it may have originally contained candy or a condiment and then was supposed to be used as a small vase or other type of receptacle, perhaps. It is molded but very complex which is what caught my attention. The bottom has numerous imperfections and swirls. The top is not threaded. There are no maker marks, numbers, etc., on it. Any thoughts about what this is/was? Guessing American made 1940s-1960s.

      one reference notes this pattern as "Swirl and Diamonds with Ovals' with a unknown maker and call this form a spooner...

      here's a matching creamer found on eBay:
      https://www.ebay.com/itm/Swirl-Diamonds-With-Ovals-Creamer-Early-American-Pattern-Glass-Cream-Pitcher-/231857232097

      there are also companion patterns called 'Swirl and Cube' and 'Swirl and Diamonds'

      Thanks, TallCakes! It is apparently a lot older than I thought it was. Now I wonder if I missed the creamer!

      Thanks for loving my spooner
