Hi , I was wondering what this glass piece is . It’s about 8” high and very heavy . Dug it in an old farm bottle dump , way down in the ground . It’s seems by the base to be a stopper or decanter / jar top of some sort ?. But it is very heavy , and the bottle or jar would have to be huge with a top like that .

If that is hollow, it is upside down. It is a flower vase from an old car. It would have been mounted in a bracket, usually on a side post in the rear of the car. Car vases were popular from the early 1900s until the 1930s. They come in many styles. We have over 150 different ones, The one you have comes in about 10 colors. We also have one of those with the knob on the base cut off that was used as part of a table lamp!
