GLASS CUTTER / PATTERN NAME: Both the glass cutter and pattern name are unknown to me. While searching for this piece I did notice that Pairpoint sometimes cut circles around the outside edge of their lids like on this one, but I was unable to match the other cutting to one of their boxes. This piece definitely has the look and quality of American Brilliant Period cut glass that was made sometime in the early 1900's.

BLACK LIGHT TEST RESULTS: Confirms American Brilliant Period (approximately 1876-1916)

METAL DETAILS: The metal frames are silver plated brass. There are no markings present.

MEASUREMENTS: 7-1/2" in diameter and 4-1/8" high

WEIGHT: 3.8 pounds

BLANKS / GLASS CLARITY: Blown / Bright and clear.

CUTTING DETAILS: The giant 8-point hobstar cut on the top provides lots of sparkle. The main miters have nice depth and the overall precision is very good. The bottom is flat and uncut.

POLISHING QUALITY: The finish looks and feels very crisp.

CONDITION REPORT (ALWAYS VERY PICKY): The glass on the lid looks perfect to me. Hiding in the side cutting of the bottom portion are a couple of pencil point sized nicks, but nothing of any noticeable size at all. The bottom is in great shape and shows minimal wear scratches for a piece like this. The interior of the glass also looks great. The silver plating looks very good overall. Please ignore the reflections on the silver in my outside pictures. To be super picky I'll mention two tiny spots where the brass is showing though on the outside where the lid meets the metal. These are only 1/16" high and 1/8" and 3/16" wide. There are also 4 similar sized spots on the interior near the front opening tab where the 2 parts appear to have rubbed over the years. None of these 6 spots are easily noticed and I'm just mentioning them to be totally accurate. The hinge is in great shape and operates well.

FINAL COMMENTS: It was extremely hard to get decent pictures of this piece and I can assure you that it looks much better in real life. Large cut glass boxes like this are getting harder to find as time goes by. This one will display very well or could certainly be used as intended. Pieces like this could also be a special vintage gift for someone.

offerDING FORMAT: There is with a $9 starting price. This is my favorite way to sell even high-priced items. I will never under any conditions end my sales early to sell to an anxious buyer requesting a buy it now.

SHIPPING & INSURANCE: A flat rate for shipping with insurance included by USPS Standard Post (formerly called Parcel Post) to anywhere in the U.S.A. will be $10. This method may take longer, but should save money for both of us. I don't ship my cut glass outside of the U.S.A. Please don't ask me to make an exception just for you. I will gladly combine multiple purchases at a reduced rate based on the buyer's location.

I am a member of the American Cut Glass Association. I subscribe to the ACGA Code of Ethics. I regularly buy quality cut glass and I hope to have plenty more to offer in my future items. I'm very much into cut glass, but I'm not your typical cut glass collector and dealer. I prefer to enjoy this glass for short periods of time and everything that I buy will eventually be sold. Because of this strategy I'm able to sell even the most desirable and rare pieces that I can find and not keep them for myself. Many serious cut glass collectors have benefited because of this and I also hope to keep the casual or beginner buyers happy with some desirable cut glass also. Please check out my other current listings and bookmark my site or add me to your favorite sellers.

RETURN POLICY: Please offer with confidence, your satisfaction is always guaranteed. I offer a 14-day return privilege. If you are unsatisfied or if you feel the item was misrepresented, it may be returned provided the item is in original condition. If the return is the result of an error on my part, I will refund the shipping & insurance costs also. For questions please use the "Ask seller a question" link in the sale or you can phone me at 412-486-9727 during reasonable Eastern Standard Time hours.

Payment

SALES TAX: Pennsylvania residents without a valid resale tax number are asked to please add 7% sales tax (6% PA. & 1% for Allegheny County) to your final purchase price when checking out. There will be no exceptions to this tax if you live in Pennsylvania and do not supply a valid resale number.


I accept the following forms of payment:
  • PayPal




Shipping & Handling

I will try my best to send out items within 24 hours of receiving payment. If this is not possible I will inform the buyer of the intended shipping date. Shipping including insurance is given as a flat rate to anywhere in the U.S.A. Depending on the buyers location and size of the box, I will use at my discretion either USPS Priority Mail or USPS Parcel Post. If by some chance my flat rate amount is larger than the actual cost, I will refund the difference. I do not charge for packing materials & handling. I pack all items very carefully to ensure a safe arrival.
