Brilliant period crystal glass powder jar with sterling lid. Marked sterling on the side of the lid along with silver smith marks and other unkown random letters and numbers.
The smith marks are a little faint and worn and a little difficult to see. Measures 3.5 inches tall with lid.
Base is about 1.75 inches wide. The opening is about 1.5 inches wide across. The glass is crystal clear and clean. From the turn of the last century and in very good condition.
But there is a very small imperfection near one of the cut angles. It appears to be a very small divot in the glass. It could have been made in production or it could be a very small fleabite. Please see third photo for a close up.
The base has hand cut starburst with little to no visible shelf wear. The glass has a repeating vertical cut along the base and diamond hatch daisy pattern. The glass feels well made and is thick. The lid features an empty cartouche surrounded by florals and decorative scroll repousse designs. There is a very small, soft dent along the side of the lid.Please see my eighth photo. The lid rests on top of the jar and doesn't screw on. The sterling displays a mostly even patina throughout with some darkening in the details. Overall, this beautiful powder jar is in really good condition for its age. Please message me with any questions or if you would like more photos. Thank you for your interest. This item is made of glass and sterling silver.
