Magical Satin Frosted Opal Lustre Iridescent Glass Vanity Powder Pot

This truly is a magical piece, the glass of which I have not seen the likes of before. It's an extraordinary piece indeed.

I do not use trick photography and none of my photographs are colour enhanced. What you see here is as is, and this glass lidded pot is a visual sensation.

At first glance, the entire piece has the appearance of matt-satin frosted glass however in the blink of any eye, the lid becomes inarguably one of the finest examples of iridescent glass that you will probably see, and I choose my words very wisely...

Amazing arrays of metallic-colours constantly fluctuate upon the lid of the pot, colours which are almost unimaginable upon any item, particularly glass.

Opalescent blues & purples, fluorescent greens, turquoise & gold shimmer across the surface and then they disappear in an instant subject to light. This is a remarkable piece which never fails to please and which almost defies belief. I cannot emphasise the beauty of this piece enough. It is a magical piece, complete with `tricks.'

The pot itself has been wonderfully moulded with a continuous band of stylized daisy flower heads and scrolls from its base to the outside top edge. The mouldings are thick and crisply defined and then matt-satin frosted to provide a luxurious finish. Only the lid has vanishing iridescence, and what a beautifully moulded lid it is...

Raised in thick high relief, is the portrait of a sinuous Art Nouveau angel. Her flowing hair entwines and interweaves into what appear to be the tops of feathered wings. As a moulded glass design it is truly delightful, however with its opal-lustred iridescent finish, it is incredible.

I am unable to provide any information about the maker of this piece, or its age. There is an oval foil label within a moulded glass cartouche, to the inside centre of the pot. The label reads: King Folly, in cursive script, however I know nothing about this maker other than my belief that it was produced in USA. I would welcome accurate information about the maker-history of this piece.

You will not believe your own eyes when you take this item from its box to witness its captivating beauty, and as my photographs perhaps illustrate, this box, is a glass box, like no other.
