Description

A very nice Block Optic tumble up.  Made by the Hocking Glass Company.  This should have a small glass that would fit on top of it, unfortunately that is missing.  These were used by the bedside, when a sip of water might be wanted in the night.  I've seen Katherine Hepburn use one in a movie with Spencer Tracy. It would work well as a decanter also. The Block Optic pattern was made by the Hocking Glass Company from 1929-1933.  This was before the company merged to become Anchor Hocking.    This tumble up stands approx. 5 3/4 inches tall and 4 inches at the widest.  It is in very good condition, very light wear, no chips or cracks.
