Made by the Sandwich Glass Company ca. 1850-70, this heavy flint covered dish was used for syrupy fruit/nut mixtures. The design is of "waffle" or blocks alternating with vertical panels, on a faceted stem. An example is shown in Barlow and Kaiser Volume 1, with the comment that the reason for the tall lid was to allow a spoon to be left inside, keeping it off limits to flies.

A nice example of heavy, clear flint.

Size: Approximately 9" high with lid.

Condition: Minor flaking on top of finial. No other chips, cracks or repairs.

Note that I try to be conservative about condition descriptions, carefully noting any flaws. Of course, with antique items, there will be some signs of usage, and/or manufacturing defects. But overall, my customers have always been pleasantly surprised upon receiving their items, and of course, returns are no problem if I happen to miss anything.
