Here are two opal ware glass dresser boxes from the CF Monroe Co of Meriden CT ca 1890-1916. These covered and hinged approx 3 1-2" x 3 1-2" opal glass boxes are described as follows:
Wavecrest white glass box with blue trim, raised rococo swirls and cherub design, faintly marked Wavecrest on bottom;
Nakara blue box with two cherubs in cameo on lid and acid finish blue glass, marked Nakara on bottom.
These dresser boxes are reminders of my mother, who collected them among other cherub themed pieces, and whose birthday would have been this weekend
