    Let me begin by saying that my parents used to do yardsale'ing, flea marketing, and antiquing in the 70s and 80s. They collected a large collection of depression glass, bottles, and pottery. I came across this glass piece, and I honestly have no idea what it is. As you can see from the photos it's green like depression glass green, there's no pattern or hint of one though. Could very easily have nothing to do with depression glass, but i found it mixed in with it. It's 5 inches long, it's about 1 inch tall, the front cup portion without the handle is 2 inches across. Any help at all would be appreciated, I'd just like to know what to call it so I can research it more, or even what it's function was. We've thought maybe a dipper, or even a candle holder? Thanks for your time!

    It's a ladle and could have been part of a punch bowl set.

    And I doubt that it has anything to do with "the depression."

    Given that the dimensions are (soooo) small :rolleyes: . . . "cup" 1" tall and 2" across" all I can say is that the contents of a punch bowl (even during the prohibition era) would cause that "ladle" and the person holding the ladle to really work for a very small amount of whatever is in the punch bowl.

    I think it's the ladle to a mayonnaise set. Sometimes seen in the depression and elegant glass books with a matching bowl.

    Oh dear, that is rather too small for punch isn't it? :rolleyes:

    How about for scooping mayo or mustard out of a bowl?

    A quick search of eBay shows 38 same and similar ladles described as mayonnaise ladles, some are this same shade of green and some are with the matching bowl.

    Check carefully through your parent's stash of depression glass, you just might have the matching bowl.
