1898 Spanish American War / Great White Fleet Uss Oregon Milk Glass Covered Dish For Sale

1898 Spanish American War / Great White Fleet Uss Oregon Milk Glass Covered Dish

Wonderful, ca1898, Early American Pattern Glass / Milk Glass Figural Covered Candy Dish in the form of the Battleship Oregon.


This fantastic Spanish American War Commemorative piece measures approx. 6 1/4" long and 4" to the top of the smokestacks. This is an original, 1890's piece not a later reproduction or reissue. The milk glass has a fiery opalescence and the detail of the mold is deep and crisp.


USS Oregon (BB-3) was a pre-dreadnought Indiana-class battleship of the United States Navy. The Oregon served for a short time with the Pacific Squadron before being ordered on a voyage around South America to the East Coast in March 1898 in preparation for war with Spain. She departed from San Francisco on 19 March, and reached Jupiter Inlet 66 days later, a journey of 14,000 nautical miles (26,000 km; 16,000 mi). This was considered a remarkable achievement at the time. The journey popularized the ship with the American public and demonstrated the need for a shorter route, which led to construction of the Panama Canal. After completing her journey Oregon was ordered to join the blockade at Santiago as part of the North Atlantic Squadron under Rear Admiral Sampson. She took part in the Battle of Santiago de Cuba, where she and the cruiser Brooklyn were the only ships fast enough to chase down the Spanish cruiser Cristóbal Colón, forcing its surrender. Around this time she received the nickname "Bulldog of the Navy", most likely because of her high bow wave—known as "having a bone in her teeth" in nautical slang—and perseverance during the cruise around South America and the battle of Santiago.


This outstanding USS Oregon Covered Candy Dish is in very good condition with some minor roughness to the edge of the base and the outer edge of the lid (as is typical of these early molded glass pieces and is likely an artifact of removal from the mold) but no other damage and no repairs of any kind. It should be noted again that this wonderful candy Dish exhibits a brilliant, fiery opalescence when held to the light.


A beautiful and quite rare, EAPG / Milk Glass Figural Covered Candy Dish in the form of the Battleship Oregon and a fantastic addition to any antique milk glass or Spanish American War collection!!!
