Ca 1900 Flaccus Glass "American Hen" Eagle Covered Dish

A commemorative piece produced during the Spanish American War (1898-1902) by the Flaccus Glass Co. famous for its detailed Victorian mold work. Made of milk glass with a fiery opalescence along the edges, it represents an eagle sitting on its nest guarding her three eggs which are named Cuba, Porto Rica (sic), and Philippines. The front and back of the dish has a banner with embossed lettering reading The American Hen. (Not all these chicks stayed with Mama U.S. eagle.)

The dish with lid measures 4 inches tall to the top of the eagle's head, 3.5" wide and 6.25 inches long. The bottom of the dish is marked PAT APPLIED FOR. There are some glitches that happened during firing: mineralized glaze pops and some fleabite chips on the rim of the base where the lid contacts.
