What is this beautiful glass piece?

Today while out on a bottle adventure I found something unexpected. Whatever it is I know it has to be good. It was in an area with bottles in the 1900-1950 range, if that helps. Diameter is 2 3/4" at the widest point. To me it looks like a light lens for a vintage car but I could be wrong. What does everyone else think?

Is the other end open? Could use a couple more pictures from other angles but looks like a drinking tumbler from what I'm seeing?

Yes the other end is open, sorry about that. I tried to search in google images and nothing similar came up. It could be a tumbler but would be a very small one. It might hold six ounces at best.

It looks like a flower frog to me, but I could be wrong. They're great for displaying marbles!

I would have expected a bit more wear on those bottom bumps if it saw much use as a tumbler, but who knows. My first thought was a lens or some type of reflector

100 percent flower frog for the bottom of a vase to help the flowers stay in their arrangement. Search 'glass flower frog' - images on any search engine ... thousands of them out there.
