What is this?
A souvenir! This is a glass model of the Goodwill Plane with Charles Lindberg! It was molded in 1928. The mission of the Pan American Good Will Flight of 1926-1927 was to express a message of friendship from the United States to the governments and people of Central and South America, as well as to promote U.S. commercial aviation and forge aerial navigation routes through the Americas.
