Mount Washington Glass Biscuit Jar-Enameled Florals - image 1 of 14

This biscuit jar appears to be Burmese but the Burmese colors are actually the background colors on an opaque white glass of which this biscuit jar is made. I believe the Mount Washington glass company called this type of glass their colonial line. It has a silver plate rim, handle and lid with the inside of the lid stamped the number 4404 and the letters MW for Mount Washington. Next to the number is a slash with symbol of which I am unfamiliar. The bottom of the jar is marked number 2598. Delicately enameled florals, possibly cherry blossoms, encircle the jar. The piece measures 7” to the top of the finial of the lid and approximately 5 1/2” across the widest area of the body. The glass itself has no chips, cracks, damage, or repairs. The silver plate areas are in excellent condition, albeit, extremely light evidence of polishing, but not loss of silver plate. I will mention that there appears to be some graphite markings around the body of the jar, they tend to blend in with the decoration. I believe a couple tiny spots are a result of the handle resting on the side of the jar. They really do not detract from the beauty of this item, mention for accuracy sake. Enameling appears to have no loss or damage. I have provided numerous pictures of this wonderful item for your viewing.
