Glass tumbler with dice in the base and etched decorations

This thick walled tumbler has a sealed compartment at the base in which three dice rattle around. The tumbler has etched designs around the circumference: a playing card, a woman, a bottle and the words '3 EVILS'. This is a good example of 'pipitis', the condition which leads to the purchase of items involving dice or cards, beloved of many magicians.
