I Thought It Was Ugly, But Now I've Become Quite Fond Of It!
My grandmother had this buried in a closet, I don't think it was her style...I'm going to guess it was a gift :)
I'm curious, Does anyone know who made this or how old it is?

    Thanks for such an enthusiastic comment! If I find another, I will make sure that I give it to you. My family was filled with twins so they had pairs of most everything. Something about this mesmerizes me, this is not something I would seek out, but now that I have it at home, I can't keep my eyes off it. Maybe it will have babies, and I can give you one! It is one freak of a piece of glass.
    My camera is being defective, the color and detail is not portrayed in these photos.
    I'm glad you like this too, Thank-You!

    generically, I'd call it an amber glass coin dot or coin spot covered candy. Fenton made similarly shaped opalescent coin dot covered candy pieces. Several glass companies have produced similar coin spot/dot designs.

    Yep, so ugly that I would have to have it, put it in a place of honor, then force all guests to gaze at it in wonder. Would probably judge them if they hated it :)
