A beautiful blue opalescent footed salver in the Tokyo pattern by Jefferson Glass, a gorgeous antique piece of glass that I have seen referred to as a card receiver, compote, tidbit tray, and even a donut plate. However, an old advertisement for Jefferson's "Best" and ever-popular opalescent assortment lists this treasure as a 6-5/8" high footed salver.
The Tokyo pattern is one that causes a bit of confusion for some, given one book's vague reference to potential reproduct..

It's always such a rare delight to be the one who is blessed to discover and offer a hard-to-find treasure. Such is the case here with this spectacular early Italian Murano art glass group sculpture depicting three birds (uccellini) on tree branches, designed by Ercole Barovier, the chief designer for Ferro Toso Barovier, which later (in the early 1940s) became Barovier & Toso.

A gorgeous crystal art glass cordial liquor decanter with rich red enameled grape vines, all hand-painted and trimmed in gold around the decanter's teardrop belly. The short tapered foot, spout rim, bubble stopper, and handle all have a gilt trim, with both ends of the applied handle adorned by a trefoil leaf.
Standing 9" high to the stopper top, I'm uncertain as to whether this decanter would have been used for dessert wine, as a vinegar cruet, or simply for display.
