Another beautiful dresser or powder jar that I recently acquired from a local estate. This one was manufactured by R. Wallace & Sons of Wallingford Connecticut. They began operations in 1871 and are still in business today. I believe this piece to date to the early 20th Century.
The jar is a large size standing 3" tall with cover and has a top diameter of about 3 3/4". The cut glass is very detailed with the typical starburst pattern on the bottom and the sides having ovals and almost a feather like design.
The sterling lid is hallmarked Sterling and has the Wallace manufacturing mark. It has a undulating design with etched florals and a central monogram which looks like RJW. It is very appealing and would easily hold a large powder puff.
The piece is in good vintage condition and would add a sense of grace to a vanity or dressing table. Note, what might appear to be scratches in the lid on some of my photographs, are not, (only reflections in the sterling). The "ripples" in the sterling top are not dents, but the natural shape of the lid.
Please Note: Advanced approval is required on any international shipments before placement of orders.
Thanks for stopping by.
