1898 Spanish American War Great White Fleet Uss Olympia Clear Glass Covered Dish For Sale

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


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 single tiny chip to the edge of the base but no other damage and no repairs of any kind.


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