Is there an opening on the bottom?
Hmmm, That is an odd one Linda - LOL! Can't say I've ever seen your UGO before! :)
It is certainly NOT an insulator of any type I've ever seen! Maybe from Mars? At first I thought it was a stopper - like for a decanter, and that still might be right.
I know, it's ENORMOUS for a stopper right? But, Could it be missing something? like a base? I'm thinking about those really huge, and REALLY expensive large bottles for perfume and some Champagnes and Wines to, Magnums or something, I think is what they are called. Mainly for promotional purposes, but some can be Extremely valuable too!
It's just a thought though, sorry I couldn't be much help. Chris - Any ideas?
I was thinking if it had a hole in the bottom it may have been some kind of lamp shade for a small lamp. If there's a band of adhesive around the bottom maybe there was something else glued to it which fit over a lamp. If you hold it up to a lamp Linda can you see through it? That's pretty large, for any kind of a stopper Vicki, 12" or so in diameter.
I don't know, I went through hundreds of google images with different parameters such as '12" mushroom shaped glass object' and saw nothing.
Oh Sorry Linda, I missed your post here. I'm still thinking it might be for some type of Very large bottle though?
Oh, and please do show us your "Christian Dior" - I love those!
Might it have been a stopper on some sort of very large bottle in a store/window display?
That was my thought to Betty! See my "guess" above, lol. It clearly is missing something?
And it appears to "fit into" another part. I'll post a pic of one of the bottles you and I are thinking of, as Chris and Linda may not have seen one before?
This one has a 12" width - also note the BIG price! LOL
