ENGRAVED ROUND CLEAR GLASS SOUVENIR BRASS HINGED BOX

COLUMBIAN EXPOSITION, CHICAGO WORLD'S FAIR OF 1893

A very rare and unusualround clear glass box (pill box, souvenir box or cosmetic box) with ornately engraved beveled glass top.It is engraved with "A Chicago World's Fair Present! 1893". The brass has not been polished so that it has a nice patina. It stands 1 1/4" tall and 2 1/2" in diameter at its widest point. It is in perfect condition except for a few small defects in the glass (bubbles, etc) that were as made. This is a rare form. I have seen a few examples with colored bottoms, but I have not seen another example that was totally clear. Adesirable piece for the advanced collector ofglass or unusual souvenirs from theChicago World's Fair of 1893. I will begin the sale with a very low starting offer.
