    U sure that's for change?
    Not a sun catcher in the shape of a container..

    Not really! I assumed it was a flower vase in the shape of a purse.

    My theory is no good, as I just checked and it doesn’t stand, so Komokwa would be right again! (Although it’s awfully heavy to hang it)

    Hmmm. I was thinking that perhaps it was a rooting jar - for plant cuttings & the like(?) It would have to hang, though...

    It’s VERY heavy. I thought it looked a little similar to the glass purses, except the lack of handles. I can’t find anything this shape.

    The weight is 1.4 pounds. The sides are both pinched. The top opening is about 2 inches across and 1/2 inch at widest point.

    The shape is somewhat similar. Those you have are very nice!

    I had been looking for help with the signature, without even realizing I’m not sure of its use. Now I need both. Ha!

    The first letter may also be an F?

    My immediate thought about it was that it was what I knew as a 'weeder' (no, not first grade Weekly Weeder), something one would see at arts/crafts shows in the 1960s, meant for hanging a tasteful little assortment of dried, yes, weeds../;;;;;;;;; (thank you, Pontiac, for that remark) Just a few, not very big, anything feathery/flowery. Sun catchers on the rise then too; this could have been both.

    You are very welcome Hunting although I'm not sure if it will help:) I'm just having a smoke break from working in the garden, but will have a look around tonight.

    Thanks so much! Unless you think it’s amateur work, I’m not good at finding things yet. Happy gardening!
