Found a base fragment of a Hazel Atlas clear glass product in an interesting 12-panel sided design. Found online references to pitchers and 4oz drink glasses that are similar, but this has a "1344" code molded into the 1-3/4" diameter base.

Does anyone have info on this code? One place suggested the 44 is year of manufacture, but I'm not sure on that. What say you?

Would a ketchup bottle be only 1.75" at the base? This holds like a shot glass or smaller drinking cup.

Shuriken, That might be the bottom of a jelly glass. Those "jelly glasses" were made by Hazel Atlas, Capstan Glass Company, and others, and usually the glass is a little thicker / heavier than a ketchup bottle. They were often saved and used as small tumblers - drinking glasses or juice glasses, because that is really what they look like (not like the typical modern jelly or jam jars).

Edit: well, just considering the diameter of the base, maybe not.

hey do the sides of the piece go straight up vertical, or slant slightly outward, or slant inward? I can't be sure from looking at the pictures.

The four digit number is the mold or design number assigned to that piece, and I doubt the "44" has anything to do with the date.
