    It looks like a hat. It has bubbles in it. No other markings. Could this be a blown glass hat? It doesn't look like a top hat. Also, how would I know if it's antique or vintage? Thank you for your help.

      not a hat..:))
      it's for cakes...*when you make a birthday cake or something like need to make the first it's liquid...right...?you poor that in the mold and after you bake turn it upside down and you got a round base...:)
      (i got that in my house...well not that...but a different model)

      Huh? It would be a tiny cake because it is not more than 6 inches. Wow I am stunned.

      A cupcake okay... so back in the days this is the way they baked? Because I never saw this before. This is glass, wouldn't it crack or shatter in the oven? I don't think this is corningware.

      Could it be for placing over a seed/seedling one is trying to encourage and protect? Like a small garden cloche?

      well...i got 1 in my home...but it's factory made...logo and everything...(it's tempered doesn't break)...that does look a bit amateur made...or unsold piece cause of production defect?'s called iena/yena or jena can cook anything in it...from chicken to cake...comes in different sizes...square rectangular round...the most known is the oval one...but they come in different zises and shapes..:)

      19th century Whimsy Glass Top Hat is my guess. I would love to have it in my collection.
