1936 Edward J. Miller ruby hanging vase This auction is for an Edward J. Miller ruby hanging vase, U.S.Pat.No. 2-026-950. The patent number dates this vase to 1936. It is 7" tall and 5" across at the widest point. No chips or cracks, but it has been used. It has the original hanger with all hardware. It is thick glass--and this picture doesn't really do it justice.
