  1. Depression Early Deco Nudes / Dancing Ladies Straw Holder / Barber Comb Holder

    Depression Early Deco Nudes / Dancing Ladies Straw Holder / Barber Comb Holder

    COMPANY / MAKER: Unknown: Many Depression Era Companies made these straw holders / Barber Sanitary Comb Holders COLOR: Crystal Satin with clear dancing nudes ITEM: Early 11" Depression Glass Straw/Comb Holder CIRCA: 1930s /40s MARK: Unsigned MEASUREMENT: 11" H. - 4 1/4" W. CONDITION: This outstanding Dancing Ladies Straw Jar / Barber Sanitary Comb Holder may be one of a kind. Many Depression Era companies used this mold and similar molds for their straw jars. They were most often found displayed in Drug Stores, Ice Cream Shops, and Diners. Barber Shops used the same jars in crystal and used them to hold their combs, scissors etc. This lovely piece is in excellent shape with a beautiful satinized finish and has 4 dancing nudes encircling the jar. We have collected Straw Holders / Straw Jars since the early 1970s and this is the only straw holder with this kind of decoration that we have ever seen. We purchased this jar years ago at a Depression Glass show. It was sold to me as a straw jar, however I don't know how many women would want dancing ladies on their straw holders, so I assume this item belonged in a bar or barber shop. The glass parts of this awesome piece are in Undamaged Condition without chips, cracks, or mold damage. The inside of the straw holder is nice and clear. The metal insert has been replaced. The one that came with it was corroded and peeling. Learn More

  2. Mckee Tulip Vase Third Panel Sheriffs Jury New York, Sterling Overlay

    Mckee Tulip Vase Third Panel Sheriffs Jury New York, Sterling Overlay

    Company Maker: The McKee Glass Company - Item: Tuip Vase with Sterling Overlay Third Panel Sheriffs Jury New York - Circa: 1937 - 1942 - Color: Crystal Satin with Silver Overlay - Measurement: 8 7/8" H. - 7 1/4" W. - Marks: Marked Sterling near the bottom of the Urn Decoration. The urn decoration appears on 3 sides of the vase. The fourth side of the vase has the Third Panel Jury Symbol with a Eagle on Top. The words "III Panel Sheriff's Jury" are incised into the design. - Condition: Over the years, altered versions of this beautiful tulip vase have been made by many companies. This exact vase was made by The McKee Glass Company from 1937 - 1942 which dates this lovely piece. The vase is shown in Sandra Stout's book " The Complete Book of McKee Glass" on page 100. This original catalog reprint leaves no doubt as to who made this piece. McKee sold the vase under their name without the sterling decoration. At some point they were commissioned to make the vase for the Third Panel Sheriff's Jury. It is unclear whether McKee added the Silver Overlay. It is more likely that a decorating company added the silver. For more information about the 3rd Panel Jury please check out the brief history below. This outstanding vase is in Undamaged Condition without chips, cracks, or mold damage. The vase is marked sterling in several different places. The sterling overlay is intact and perfect. Learn More
