Wavecrest glass was highly desirable art glass of the late 1800s to early 1900s. It was hand decorated by the best artists of the time and extremely well designed. Wavecrest was produced by the CF Monroe Co. In Meriden CT until their large factory complex burned down and ended their production. The boxes with blown out flowers on the lid are very desirable and hard to find.
Most of the time the background color is a pastel but this one has the marbled rust coloration which is even more difficul to find. The pansy is white with shades of pale yellow and orange. There is the very faint remains of their black mark and also part of a paper label on the bottom.
It's a nice addition to a Wavecrest collection or just as an interesting coffee table decoration. This piece measures " tall x " x.
