I am offering a glass trinket box in the shape of a general's hat that I have had for a very long time.  Over the course of time since I have had it, I have been able to learn a bit of history.  It seems it was produced during the war years of the 1940's and most likely given by service men to their wives or sweethearts.

Although I have not been able to ascertain the glass company that produced this trinket box,  I am reasonably sure it was produced by a glass house here in the US.

The trinket box measures 5-1/4" across the bottom from front to back.  Side to side the measures is 3-1/2".  Diameter of the lid is 4-5/8".  1-1/4" deep.

Condition of the glass:  a few nicks along the inside edge of the lid as well as the inside edge of the base.  Which is just normal from usage of lifting the lid.  Although flaws I consider the nicks minor.

A historical glass trinket box to add to a collection.

The hat is in two pieces - a bottom and a lid.  The lid is mirrored on the outside and glass ribbed on the inside.  It is a stained painted or a washed glass in a gold color, of which there is some wear to the stain/wash as can be noted from the photographs.

The mirror is beveled and sits down into the lid of the glass.  Some loss of silvering to the mirror.
