-This is the most beautiful wheel cut crystal antique piece of glass I have ever seen. It was used as an ashtray for a retired Army Major's cigar for many years. I commented on the piece often when I saw him use it as such a functional piece. I was told his wife wanted something functional but pretty and she picked it up somewhere in Europe probably. Years later, when I had an opportunity to buy some of the family's items, there it was. It has been mine for maybe 35 years. The condition is amazingly good due to the daily wear and tear it had and many cleanings. It had when I bought it one tooth broken off and that is where his cigar sat when it was not being held between his fingers. Since I have owned it another tooth has some damage but is still intact just slimmer than the others.
What drew my attention to this piece to begin with is the concentric wheel cut lines that make the side appear to be frosted. I have looked for that over these years and found it only one other time while browsing thru a fine antique show in Minneapolis once and it was on a similar heavy chuck of glass like this one. I have priced this due to it's heft and design as well as stunning beauty. The piece I saw in the show over 20 years ago was over $100, but with the chips I sell as is and have made a good profit as well as use of the item to let it go for a lesser amount.
