C.1930 ART DECO Sterling Silver, Glass Cab & Cut Crystal Dresser Jar/Container!
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: C.1930 or so - maybe a little earlier, maybe a little later
ITEM: When I first spotted this decorative crystal container, I thought the lid would be silverplate - the tarnishing and the decorative blue glass cabs couldn't possibly be on a piece of sterling! So you can imagine my surprise when I got the dresser box home and discovered the STERLING hallmark amidst all the black! This lovely dresser jar features a cut crystal base with an extremely decorative top - blue glass cabs bezel set, applied descorative motifs and a beaded edge on top; the inside of the lid has a gold wash which means the outer portion of the lid might have been gold washed (vermeil) as well. Yes, the top can be polished but I must admit, I do like the play of black against the blue!
CONDITION: Excellent! Well, if you like vintage patina excellent. No chips, cracks, breaks, hairlines to the glass. No dents or dings to the lid. The bond between the lid and the jar is nice and tight - if you lift the handle, the jar comes along with it.
METAL CONTENT: Sterling Silver
HALLMARKS: STERLING along the edge of the lid.
SIZE: The box stands about 3-1/4" high. The width of the crystal body is about 3-1/2".
FINAL COMMENTS: A stunning bit of decoration for a lady's boudoir!
