Antique glass dresser box, most likely Bohemian in origin, from Victorian era. Hand blown of opaque black glass, with gorgeous quality hand enameled flowers on top. The white, blue and pink enamels really stand out on the glossy black background. This is about the size of a powder box. The glass box itself is 4.25 inch diameter, by 3.5 inches deep. It sits in mounts that are made of brass, so the height is 4.25 inches. This dates from 1880's to 1890's, during the popularity of hand enameling on art glass. While some hand painted enamel glass was produced in America and England, most came from Bohemia. Companies such as Moser and Harrach produced fine enameled pieces such as this. Condition is good. No issues at all to the glass. No chips, no scratches, no repairs. The brass mountings show natural signs of age such as tarnish, but no problems. You will see a little of the pin sticking out of the hinge, that's all. The clasp closes nicely. I did not clean or polish the brass. This is a beautiful example of a Victorian dresser box. The pretty painting on top includes a rose, lily of the valley and two other flowers.
