Hello, Collectors Weekly community! I found this beautiful thing at a thrift store some time ago. I have no idea what it is. Does anyone have a clue? It's stamped CZECHO SLOVAKIA. Extremely ornate metalwork with a variety of inset faceted and cabochon stones. I believe them to be stones, but they may be glass. And I believe it to be from around 1919 or so, based on the way CZECHO SLOVAKIA is written. I was thinking that it may be a ring holder. It's too short to be a cup holder, unless the cups were tiny demitasse or tea cups. It stands 5.625" high; the base and top are both 2.75" wide. It weighs 5 ounces. I have searched and searched online and can't find one single thing that even comes close to this. Your thoughts, please? Thank you!
