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.
