C1898 Spanish American War / Great White Fleet Uss Maine Milk Glass Covered Dish For Sale

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


This fantastic Spanish American War Commemorative piece measures approx.7 3/4" long and 3 3/4" 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.


The USS Maine was a Battleship of the Great White Fleet whose sinking in Havana Harbor precipitated the US action known as the Spanish-American War.


This outstanding USS Maine Covered Candy Dish is in very good condition with a tiny chip on the right hand side of the base near the stern and a tight associated 7/8" crack. There is also some minor roughness to the edge of the base (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 to the base. The figural lid has a tiny, 1/4", tight crack at the left hand side of the bow. 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 Maine and a fine 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.
