This antique dresser box or jar is a lovely example of the Nakara line from C. F. Monroe. C. F. Monroe company which also produced the popular Wavecrest line, primarily did decoration and many of their blanks came from Mt. Washington. The Nakara line is rarer and harder to find than similar examples of Wavecrest. This lovely box, which dates to around 1900 is decorated with beaded enamel and a transfer design of cherubs or putti on the lid. It is an unusual and beautiful amber color on the base. It is marked C F Monroe Nakara (unusual to find marked pieces) and it has the remains of a paper label.

It is 3 inches in diameter across the top (a bit wider through the body of the jar) and it is about 2 1/2 inches tall. It is in excellent condition. It has some patina to the brass mounts but they are tight, the hinge is good and the catch closes as it should. There is some wear to the enamel beading on the top.
