$30


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!!!

Important Notes about Shipping Charges:

The amount quoted for Shipping & Handling is calculated by and is equal to the EXACT amount charged by the Post Office plus a $1.00 "packing fee" - the $1.00 fee is our only compensation for the virgin packing materials we use on all of our professionally packaged boxes as well as our cost for the salaried help that does most of our packing - as I am sure you can see, we make NO profit on the Shipping charges and, in fact, our costs are usually greater than the $1.00 fee. Please contact us if there are any issues regarding the cost of shipping.
