Whitehouse Vinegar Bottle - Hocking Cameo Ballerina Dancing Girl Pattern - Owens Illinois Glass

Sorry, this item has sold.

Featured is a super-cool Whitehouse Vinegar green glass bottle with a Cameo or Dancing Girl pattern. This bottle measures about 7 3/4 inches tall and about 5 inches in diameter. The story goes, that in the 1930's the folks at National Fruit Products Co. were so enamored with the Cameo decanter that was made by Hocking Glass at the time, that they decided to come up with a less expensive copy of it to distribute their White House Brand Vinegar in. National Fruit went to Owens-Illinois Glass, and had them come up with a copy of the now-famous Cameo decanter. This bottle is a dark green color, and the dimensions of the neck and lip are entirely different than Hocking's version. This bottle was never equipped with a stopper, and was distributed with a cork closure instead. The embossing on the sides of the decanter are very similar to those on the original, but the bottles were evidently enough different, to avoid legal troubles. This piece is in great condition, free from chips or cracks.

Shipping Policy

I do combine shipping when possible for smaller items and refund shipping overages if they’re over $1.50. Note, many large items cannot be combined into one box and must be shipped separately to give them the best chance of making their way to you safely. I’m not trying to make money off of shipping charges, and will do my best to provide you with the lowest possible cost. I strive to ship items no later than the following business day. Items are generally shipped USPS priority mail which includes $50 insurance. All items are carefully packaged. If an item is damaged during shipping, please take pictures and let me know immediately so a claim can be filed with the shipper. If you prefer an alternate shipping method please send me a message to discuss options.

Sometimes Priority Mail shipping is cost prohibitive (especially for those on the West Coast). Send me a message and we’ll see if Flat Rate shipping is possible. Prices for this service is generally about $19 for a “Large” box and about $13.65 for a “Medium” box. Note that USPS Flat Rate boxes aren’t that big, so this might not be an option when purchasing larger items.


All items are described as accurately as possible, and any damage noted. Items are twenty or more years old and may show wear consistent with age/use. I encourage you to ask any questions prior to purchase. I generally do not accept returns, but there are always exceptions, so please message me if you feel you need to return an item. If you are not satisfied with your purchase for any reason please reach out right away so that we may reach an amicable solution, I want you to be happy with and enjoy your purchase!


I enjoy finding vintage pieces and moving them along to new homes. I’m an easy going person and do this more as a hobby than a business, I like researching these old items to find their origins/history. If you want to discuss any items listed, tell me I’m way off base on my pricing, wrong on my description, or whatever convo me!
