1898 Spanish American War / Reat White Fleet Uss Olympia Milk Glass Covered Dish For Sale

Wonderful, ca1898, Early American Pattern Glass / Milk Glass Figural Covered Candy Dish in the form of the Admiral Dewey's Flagship the USS Olympia.


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 Olympia (C-6/CA-15/CL-15/IX-40) is a protected cruiser that saw service in the United States Navy from her commissioning in 1895 until 1922. This vessel became famous as the flagship of Commodore George Dewey at the Battle of Manila Bay during the Spanish-American War in 1898. The ship was decommissioned after returning to the U.S. in 1899, but was returned to active service in 1902.


This outstanding USS Olympia Covered Candy Dish is in very good condition with some minor roughness to 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) and a tiny nick to the underside of the lid edge 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 Protected Cruiser USS Olympia and a fantastic addition to any antique milk glass or Spanish American War collection!!!
