Fostoria Glass produced a variety of boxes in the American pattern.  They considered the Pomade and Cover to be a “cologne and toilet article”.   Cologne and toilet articles included different items – from Colognes to Comb and Brush Trays, and more.  While some of these same items were included in their colored “Boudoir Sets”, the Pomade and Cover was not.

Fostoria | American | Pomade and CoverWhat exactly is pomade?  It is a product that gives hair a shiny and slick appearance.  It was quite popular in the early 20th century, which relates to the time period in which Fostoria produced the Pomade and Cover – from 1916 to 1925.  Murray’s Hair Pomade was a highly sought-after product that was available in the mid-20’s, and is still available today.

The Pomade and Cover is approximately 2-inches square (measured with the Cover on).  Without the Cover, the box is approximately 1¾-inches square.

The Cover is level on the top; however, the underside has a retainer ring that fits just inside the walls of the box.  This design helps keep the Cover secure.  It is important to note; however, that many boxes and covers (when fitted together) might have a slight wobble to them.
