This exquisite eapg puff box, or dresser jar, is the Delaware pattern made by the U.S. Glass Co., circa 1898, as part of their 'states' series. This is a *rare emerald green and gold "puff box" with its original "jeweled" lid! What a great find indeed! This is an outstanding, detailed floral pattern in green glass, highlighted in shiny gold - just beautiful! And to top it off, this puff box has an ornately detailed, 'beaded' lid - with green glass 'jewels' as part of the pattern! It measures 3 1/2 inches tall x 4 1/2 inches wide and is in AMAZING condition for it's 120+ years! The gold highlights are excellent, with only minor expected wear, and there are absolutely no chips or damage!! This is truly a magnificent antique glass treasure, worthy of a special place in your collection!
*This very popular Delaware pattern was made by the U.S. Glass Co., from 1898 - 1910, but, it's likely that only a few of these dresser jars were produced, since they are quite scarce.
