This lovely milk glass box by Fostoria features a cameo portrait of Jenny Lind embossed in the glass lid. The oval covered box is heavily embossed with an ornate pattern. The inside lid still has the original Fostoria label.
This box has been in my possession for years and until I photographed it I had not realized that it appears to have been repaired in two places. Both the lid and the box itself have an area near their edge that has been cracked and can be found on close inspection. I see no evidence of glue but because the areas feel solid my guess is they have been repaired. The close up photos shows each of these areas. The box measures 6" by 3 1/8".
You may wish to see the matching handkerchief box also in this shop.
