Well !! after over 20 years of lugging this thing around I found out what this thing was, A Vidrio fan base. The Vidrio company had their own glass manufacturing plant & made a wide variety of things. Fan bases, gear shift knobs, cigarette lighters etc... So glad I stumbled onto this site, I'll post a few of my "anchor" and then the link & a few pics from the site to spark your interest.

I'VE WONDERED ABOUT SOME OF THESE GEAR SHIFT KNOBS FOR YEARS, "HOUZE" WAS ANOTHER
MANUFACTURER OF THEM. MANY PEOPLE THINK AKRO MADE SHIFTER KNOBS BUT THERE IS "NO" PROVENANCE 
(DUG EXAMPLES OR DOCUMENTATION ETC...) OF AKRO EVER PRODUCING THEM.
