Exceedingly scarce, antique Victorian beveled glass jewel box, or dressing table box having an outer layer of uranium Vaseline glass over an inner layer of pale yellow opaque glass, and elaborately enameled in polychrome colors depicting a flowering woody shrub with a Peacock perched in its branches.
Highlighted in gold gilt enamel, and fitted with a Meriden Silver Plate Co. Quadruple Plate frame terminating on four ball feet. Circa fourth quarter, nineteenth century.
Measures approximately 5.5” widest x 3.6” deep x 4.75” tall. No damage or restoration. Wear to gold enamel highlights normal for age. Commensurate wear to unpolished silver plated fittings.
Both collectors of antique glass caskets and Vaseline uranium glass collectors will know just how infrequently one will have an opportunity to add such a scarce glass form to their collection. This one is just fantastic and you may never see another like it.
