For your consideration is a lovely cigarette box in the Nova Rose pattern by Blue Ridge Pottery. It was made from the 1940's to the 1950's at Southern Potteries Inc. in Erwin Tennessee. Marked on the bottom of the box is Blue Ridge, Hand Painted, Underglaze, Southern Potteries Inc., Made In U.S.A.. The box is approx. 4" square.
It is in good condition for it's age. There is a chip on the lid that has been glazed over that occurred at the factory. One corner has a tiny nick and other corners have a couple of very small nicks. There is some age crazing of the finish. See the pictures for more details.
