This is my cherished Dove in Hand/Hand & Dove Atterbury milk glass covered dish, patented Aug. 27, 1889. The lid features a most beautiful hand gently embracing a tame and tender dove. Mold work is remarkable: Bird and lace cuff are rendered with exceptionally fine detail. 'Lacy base' has pedestal. Glass is full cream opaque white - a bright, glossy white. Box measures 6 and 3/4 inches long. I use it as a glove box.

Those who favor Atterbury glass will observe that the dove is missing a blue 'jewel' eye, and that the stone in the ring should be red. One day, I shall find an eye for the dove, a pale blue or muted pink. I find I like the ring's blue stone.

Atterbury was a American glass concern active circa 1865-1903.

    I have the base for this without the lid...... I keep it on my dressing table, so! close to where it should be! thank you for informing me to what I have...:-)

    Thank you very much, inky, for your kind comment! This base might fit other Atterbury lids, as well. If you are looking for a lid, a former Treasurer of the National Milk Glass Collectors Society sells on ebay. Her moniker is dnl_antiques, and her first name is Dee. I don't mean to advertise on her behalf - don't want to break the rule!s - but I do recommend that you consult her if you wish to identify the proper lid/lids for your base. She is most knowledgeable and ethical; also her prices are remarkably low for the items she sells. She has been in the business 30 years, and seems to know the big collectors. I recently pined away after an antique English opalescent bowl she was selling. She had acquired it from a museum. I have 10 years experience buying on ebay, and I think that she is the best Seller I have met. Certainly, she would be my first stop if I were seeking to match base to lid. She will know off the top of her head. Kind regards, miKKo

    Really delicate and pure miKKo. I like this piece a lot.
    I don't think guiding someone to an ethical seller who can help find a piece/part is breaking the rules. Part of the beauty of CW is knowledge and assistance.
    Have a great day miKKo!

    This piece is absolutely beautiful! Had you not mentioned the missing eye stone, I would never have thought of it having had one. I love it as it is.
