I love love love cobalt glass. You'll see it featured here in my Vintage Thingies a lot. I really love this piece, and keep it out on the kitchen counter all the time.
My great-aunt, knowing my love of cobalt glass, sent this to me. It's the perfect little jar to keep toothpicks in (in fact, I think that's what it's supposed to be used for)! I don't know where she got it - if she found it in an antique shop or if it was given to her by the original owner - the person, who, in 1904, got this very cool souvenir from New Orleans. Either way, I love it!
