Description: A beautiful vintage cobalt blue Bohemian glass round bombe box having a brass closure with a hinged lid. This small box has a gold colored overlay on the hinged lid. The overlay decoration represents a beautiful and very well executed design of leaves in a circular pattern. The lid has a thumb piece in the form of double loop which helps snap the lid shut. The bottom half of the box has a bombe shape which extends beyond the top half or lid and has rounded sides. The bottom of the box is round and relatively flat with slight curvature. This is beautiful box probably from the last quarter of the 19th century or first quarter of the 20th century. Truly a beautiful box of the highest quality worthy of a spot in your collection of small boxes. Please carefully review the photos as they are part and parcel of our description. Date: Uncertain but most likely late 1800s or early 1900s. Origin: Purchased at an estate auction in Southeastern Pennsylvania. Size: Measures ~1 3/4” in diameter at the base and is ~1 1/8" high with the lid closed. The box weighs a little over 1 ounce. Maker: Unknown. Marks: Unmarked.
Distinguishing Characteristics - Most Interesting About The Piece: This is definitely a nice quality Bohemian glass box, which deserves a spot in your small box collection. Condition: Box is in very good condition given its age and utilitarian function. It has no cracks, breaks, hairlines, chips, or repairs. The hinge is in excellent condition and works very well. Box closes tightly. The surface of the box has a few scratches and the center of the base shows wear commensurate with the fact that the box would have been moved over hard surfaces throughout its life. The overlay shows no losses and is intact and beautiful. The box could probably use a good cleaning, but we leave that to the new owner's discretion. Please see the photos for additional condition information.
