Washington glass, 'Egg Crate' Opaline Photo receiver box

This beautiful 'Wave Crest' Victorian art glass photo receiver box was produced between 1890 and 1910 by the *C.F. Monroe Company. This Victorian opaline (milk glass) box is listed as a "photo receiver" in the 1902/1903 C.F. Monroe catalog, and was used for collecting cabinet photo cards, a very popular size photograph at the turn of the century. This amazing 'puffy' opaline glass pattern is called "egg crate". The outstanding hand-enameled floral pattern is quite detailed in muted hues of pink, yellow and green. The top rim collar is a gold-wash over brass, with a beautiful ornate design on each corner. In Good condition for it's age - this box has a small well-done chip repair (glued) on the base which appears to have been done some time ago - It is very hard to see, and does not show up well in the photos - It is nearly undetectable and does not detract from the beauty of this piece AT ALL. (I'm sure you will agree!) There is wear to the gold-wash finish and minimal wear to the enamel decor, both consistent with age. Measures 4 1/4 inches tall x 5 1/2 inches x 3 inches. This is a gorgeous CF Monroe/ Mt. Washington piece offered at a GreAt price, due to a fairly minor imperfection! You will love it, I guarantee!

*C.F. Monroe purchased glass blanks / molds from the Mount Washington Glass Company, and decorated them with "wave crest" decor.
