Goofus Glass Early 20th century 2 Vases 9.25" & 15.25"
$50.00 plus shipping
Here are what I believe to be 2 rare Goofus Glass Vases. Measurements are approximate. One is 15 1/4" tall with 5 1/2" diameter base, the other is 9 1/4" tall with 4 1/2" diameter base. They are in very good vintage condition, a little rough around the rim but I do not see any chips or cracks, and of course there is considerable loss of the cold paint. I found these at the same Estate sale and decided to sell them together, but would consider selling them separately.
Goofus glass is decorative glassware produced in the late 19th century and early 20th century. It was sold very cheaply or used as carnival prizes or giveaways. Goofus glass is most often found in green, red and gold. It is believed the name Goofus glass came about because of the inexpensive look and lack of quality in the paint which chipped off easily and gave the pieces a goofy look.
