      Anchor Hocking moonstone perfume/cologne bottle. It originally had cork on the stopper. Maybe 1950s. Lots of these on ebay. I have one or two.

      Angus100, I think kwqd is right. My family had one, too, and I had to identify it along with all the rest of the bric-a-brac. :-)

      Per Everything But The House:

      *snip*

      A vintage Wrisley perfume bottle by Anchor Hocking. The Moonstone Clear bottle features an opaque reeded neck, a translucent oblate body with a hobnail pattern to the exterior, and a spherical milk glass stopper. The bottle was made between 1942-46 by Anchor Hocking for Wrisley of Chicago.

      Thank you all! I learn so much from posting items on here! Still leaves me wondering how my depression era grandparents ended up with so many wonderful things...this is such a wonderful website, and tool for learning.

      Angus100, You're welcome. :-)

      I suspect the answer on your grandparents (as with mine) is that a lot of these things weren't considered all that special in their day.
