Vannes le Chatel (France) Art Glass Dog-Shaped Snack or Trinket Dish

$ 20.00

A heavy crystal dog-shaped snack or trinket dish presumably by Vannes Art Glass (the original label is not present) which was made in the French village of Vannes-Le Chatel until the 1970s when the name changed.  The dog measures 5" long to the tail and sits 4 3/4" high.  The original purpose of this piece may have been as an ashtray as there is a resting divet in the tail, but there is no indication that it was ever used for this purpose as it shows no evidence of use and is clean and with no scratches to the glass.
