Rare to find Hand Painted Milk Glass Rabbit on Picket Fence Box, this particular covered dish has hand painted pink roses, light blue picket fence posts, and hand applied gilt details. Made by the Westmoreland Specialty Company which began glass making in 1889. This covered dish, or box, is so charming! Usually only found in the all white, or perhaps white with pink ears and nose, this little bunny is wearing all her pretty flowers for Spring.
It’s made of white opalescent glass, mold formed, then painted very carefully at the factory by one of the many artists employed by the company. A gilt little rose spray was added to the inside bottom. It is not marked, as the earlier pieces were not. This is an unusual figural piece to add to your glass collection.
- Measures 5-3/8″ x 3-6/8″ x 4-1/2″h.
