Production Dates:  1915-1928

This wonderful box was one of the first items produced in the American pattern.  Ten years later, when this same piece of glass was produced in color, it was known as the Small Cigarette & Cover.  Both items were made from the same glass mould; their only difference is whether they were produced in clear crystal or the colors of Amber, Blue, or Canary.  The crystal version; however, was always called the Jewel Box & Cover.

The Jewel Box & Cover is approximately 5½” in length.  Some early catalogs state the length at 5¼”, and that appears to be true when measuring just the bottom box.  If you take a measurement of the box, with the cover on, then it’s total length will be closer to the 5½” assessment.  Other smaller boxes were also produced, such as the Hair Pin Box.  The early period of the American pattern produced a variety of boxes, in a variety of shapes.  These items are highly sought after, and due to the delicate nature of the lids, finding a complete box in good to excellent condition should always be considered a wonderful find.
