Glass Karma: Garage sale find

Wanted to share this beautiful piece, found in South Florida at a garage sale 
for $15.00. This ice bucket container measures 10 inches high. Hoping to own 
every piece from the 1977 Blue Top Mountain collection. Wish me luck!

Hi Karen,
Great find and good luck on finding the rest of this series. I have the larger version of this piece which is a tall cylinder vase along with the decanter and small jug as well. I just recently found the same large cylinder vase on an antiquing outing in west Texas but it is in Crystal instead of the wonderful blue/green fade of the others. I hope to find and add the pitcher and small vases in this series one day.

The price is still a bit much.
