This whimsical milk glass compote was manufactured by Atterbury Glass and dates to c. 1889. The antique milk glass features a cat lounging on the lid. We see the kitty has amber glass eyes and the mold is well defined. The base has a lattice rim and the entire piece is rectangular in shape with a low stand.
Measuring 8 inches long, 4 3/4 inches wide, and 5 1/4 inches tall we find this to be in fabulous condition without issues. We ran our finger along the edge of the lattice rim and there are no chipped areas. You see annealing marks on the kitty and bottom of base from the manufacturing process.
