This is a Chinese brass round box with a lid and an inner blown clear glass bowl. The date is circa 1900.
The box is is 3 ½” high to the top of the finial and 5 ¼” wide.
The finial is a foo dog.
The raised designs are ones of pots with plants and flowers, a design found on high end Chinese pottery and metal. The colors are fused on with heat.
The bowl fits exactly into the bottom of the round box and it is original to the piece. The word China is etched into the bottom of the glass. The glass has air bubbles and some bumps from the glassmaking process; there are no nicks, chips or cracks.
The brass has a lot of age patina and wear. I did not clean the metal as the buyer may want to retain the patina. The brass has a slightly ridged design in the metal between the raised flower pots. There are no dents.
The words “Made In China” are impressed into the bottom of the box.
