There are hand painted dogwood blossoms on the lid of this lovely milk glass trinket box. Made as a commemorative, it is called a Victorian trinket box.
The box itself has four little ornate feet and measures 2 ¾” square (including feet). With top on, the box is 2 7/8” tall. All corners and edges are beaded. All four sides of box are adorned with stylized flowers and leaves. Signed on underside with raised W on G for Westmoreland Glass.
According to the National Westmoreland Glass Collector's Club these boxes were made by another manufacturer with an original Westmoreland mold to commemorate Westmoreland's history after the plant closed in 1984.
The interior of the box has a pretty pale pink cast to it, while the exterior is pure white. There is a tiny defect in the lid next to the decoration, done in the manufacturing (see last photo), and a small straw mark inside the lid. There are no cracks, chips or scratches and no paint loss. Altogether this is a charming and lovely little item fit for a milk glass collection - or to use as a trinket box!
