    This 3 1-4"H x 3 3-4"W opal ware (a type of milk glass) dresser box is at least 100 yrs old, as it was made by the CF Monroe Co of Meriden CT, who were only in business between 1892-1916. The lid shows a transfer image of a violin-playing cherub, & the pink floral design is hand painted. These boxes were satin lined on inside top & bottom, only the top remains on this one. Monroe also produced vases, plates and tableware, the lines were called Wave Crest, Kelva and Nakara.

    This box was my mother's whose birthday was May 31st, so Mom this post is for you with love

      I know Judy, birthdays of loved ones who've passed are cruel reminders, but as time passes it gets easier. My mom and I used to joke about which celebrities had our birthdays, and one of mine was the tragic Edith Piaf, fortunately I've been quite a bit happier than she was lol

      Thank you Scott and Ken for thinking this beautiful, it has held up rather well for its age, I think the delicate cherub painting is so sweet and old fashioned. Thanks for liking the lace piece Ken, I wanted it to look like it belonged in the bedroom

      Yes Mom was a tasteful person Eileen, very well read and able to speak to anyone on any level, though she didn't attend college. She always encouraged me to read, read, read and thought I would make a good journalist, but I got as far as being a good secy-typist so I did work with words...thanks for your kind warm words

      Thanks so much for loving this

      * A special thank you for the loves from you fine glass collectors, you have the most beautiful amazing collections & am humbly grateful you liked this
