Augustus Chase established the Waterbury Manufacturing Company in 1876. Around 1900 it was renamed Chase Metal Works and was a major U.S. government supplier during World War I. An aggressive marketing campaign introduced Chase to the home consumer market in 1928. The "Centaur" mark was created (a centaur holds a bow in the midst of a hunt or chase). These were the years of Art Deco style and Chase became one of the largest producers of high quality deco-style products for the home. During World War II they once again converted to wartime production needs. After the war ended, Chase chose not to resume making consumer products and their most famous works ceased.

This beautiful dresser jar, circa 1940, was designed by Walter Von Nessen. The bottom is a heavy clear glass insert in a chrome holder; the base of the glass insert has a raised circular design. The chrome lid has a repousse design of three sets of three hearts each. The most prominent set are enameled a rich creamy color. The butterscotch bakelite finial is the crowning touch. The covered jar 3 1/4" in height and 5 1/8" across. It is stamped inside the lid with the Centaur mark and "Chase USA". Excellent vintage condition with only minor enamel loss and several tiny indentations in the lid. A great covered deco piece for powder, jewelry or candy.
