Fenton calls this item a boxtle because it's a cross between a powder box and a perfume bottle - a very clever idea indeed. There are three pieces - the base, which is the bottom of the powder box; the lid, which covers the base and includes a built in perfume bottle; and a stopper, which goes in the top of the perfume bottle.

This boxtle is made of green hobnail glass and has opalescent highlights, which means there was bone ash in the glass formula and with careful reheating, the white highlights are brought out. To top it all of, a metallic spray was added and another reheating process done to give it an iridized finished - a pretty rainbow effect.

This boxtle was made by Fenton for their Museum Collection and there's a stamp that says this on the base along with the year 2002. A silver oval Fenton sticker is located on the lid. The opening to the perfume bottle is very difficult to make on this piece and large quantities are not produced.

This piece is in like new condition. It stands 7 1/2 inches tall to the top of the stopper. A unique and useful piece of art glass that's very hard to find.
