Real World Reference

A glass unicorn may be a reference to the play "The Glass Menagerie."

Tcotchke is a word in Yiddish (of Slavic origin) meaning "trinket" or "toy".

It is often used to specifically refer to cheap trinkets of no real use and having only minor aesthetic value. The glass animals commonly sold in gift shops meet this definition of Tcotchke.
