Crystal clear hand blown art glass basket with split handle. Measures 7 1/2" tall, and is very heavy. With the decorative indentations in the top I would think this could be used as an ashtray also.

Okay,,,, Impressionistic art glass kiwi bird paperweight. Pretty dark amber hand blown glass with bubbles inside, a ground polished bottom. Some look at it and see an ant eater.. and some see an elephant but it is actually New Zealand's Kiwi bird. Great condition and measures 3 1/4" tall. There is a small faint fracture under the glass, where someone has bumped another paperweight against it. Definately made by Hokitika, but no label. Need more pictures, just ask, and I will email them to you.
