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..

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.

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.
