Welcome to Antiques & Moore! This listing is for a beautiful "Kelva" Art Glass dresser box by the C. Kelva is a category of decoration applied to Wave Crest glass which was produced as an opal glass blank and then decorated. There were not as many Kelva decorated items produced so it is much scarcer than other Wave Crest pieces.

Much of the opal glass known as Wave Crest was produced by the Mt. As glass blanks to be decorated by their artists. This box features a mottled rosey/pink and white background with beautifully hand painted floral design with flowers that have white highlights and jeweled stamens. The top and base are fitted with a decorative brass collar with a tight hinge that opens and closes correctly. Measures 3 1/2" high with a top diameter of 5 1/8" and base diameter of 5 3/4.

This nice box is in excellent Estate condition with no chips, cracks or repairs. The background color is not faded nor is the paint worn. There is a no-harm slender streak in the glass that runs around the base section of the box that occurred during production (see photos). Silk fabric interior has been removed. We at Antiques & Moore have been in the Antiques business for over 30 years and try to describe our items as accurately as possible.
