Cobalt Blue Glass and Sterling Silver Overlay Christmas Dish
Here is a beautiful antique cobalt blue glass candy or bon-bon dish, with sterling silver overlay, that measures approx. 5 & 1/4 inches wide by 4 inches deep by 3 inches tall, not counting the bail handle.
It consists of a cobalt blue glass bowl, oval in shape, that is covered with sterling silver overlay which is bright cut with floral swags and designs. There is a solid silver bail handle on top, and it stands on four solid silver applied feet. There is a beautiful old monogrammed "E.L.F." on one end, and the other end is marked with the date "Dec. 25, 1905". I can find no maker's marks.
The glass is deep cobalt blue, and is in perfect condition, with no cracks or chips. The handle and overlay are also in perfect condition, with no repairs or restorations, save some old re-soldering repairs to two of the four feet where they join the base (please view close-ups). There is an inscription on one end indicating that it was given at Christmas more than 100 years ago adding to it's charm. It would certainly make a nice Christmas gift once again!
