This is a vintage blue glass hand-blown cruet with a clear glass stopper. This blue cruet is adorned with applied glass pink and white flowers. It has a grounded smooth pontil and measures about 8.5 to the top of the stopper. Unfortunately, this vintage cruet does have a chip on the rim which you can see on the picture on the right.
Many scenes of the Mad Men television show are shot in the offices of the executive partners of the fictitious advertising agency. It is interesting to watch as most men and women of that generation smoked and drank . . . in their office. Unlike today where smokers have to go outside; and more and more companies are requiring that their employees not smoke at all. But what interests me, as well as other collectors Iím sure, are the time accurate accessories on the show.
One accessory on the show that has caught a lot of attention is the barware and in particular, the Roly Poly glasses used by the shows characters at least in the first few seasons. These glasses filled with whiskey, vodka and other liquor were designed by Dorothy Thorpe.
