Who doesn't like cherubs? These roly poly childlike pudgy beings with wings have been depicted in various forms of art throughout the ages. At one time they had a significant religious meaning but through the years most people have come to admire their symbolism of love and innocence. The Victorians loved cherubs and they were represented in their tapestries, paintings and art glass. One artist who excelled in creating a unique type of art glass was C.F. Monroe. He is known mostly for creating Wavecrest, circa 1890's, an opaque white glass that often had paintings or transferred scenes of flowers, pastoral landscapes and on occasion, angels. He created household items such as vases, smoking items, ferniers, dining pieces and boxes of all types. Offered today is a large box which depicts angels, a perfect representation of a Victorian treasure. It is large and has both a lid and a bottom. It has decorative gold tone metal strips on the bottom of the lid and the top of the bottom. The glass is typical Wavecrest glass being that it is an opaque white glass that is not flimsy but thick. There are raised scroll-like work on the top of the lid. There are two cherubs depicted in bright soft colors. They are chubby and appear to be amusing themselves. The bottom has an array of light blue flowers. The entire palette is peaceful, joyful and celestial. The inside is lined with the original silk gold fabric. It is shredding in areas but since this piece is over 100 years old, it is amazing that it is still there. The box measures 7+" in diameter by 4"high. The black Wavecrest trademark is on the bottom. The piece is in wonderful condition without scratches, cracks or chips. The hinge works well and the top lifts up easily and closes tightly. It has a key lock but the key is long gone. What a beautiful box for my lady's vanity or dresser. Love is the absolute feeling that does not need to be remembered only on Valentine's Day....Cupid tells us that! Condition: Excellent VINTAGE Condition
