Luxuriously elevate your space with one of these rare antique opaline glass boxes. Made in France between 1810 and 1890, opaline glass is highly collectible and sought after for its semi-opaque coloring and seamless appearance. Hand blown, these glass containers hinged with gilt bronze are heirlooms which will continue to grow in value, yet never fade in elegance. With so many colorful shapes, these antique, Pre-World War 1 beauties are ideal for collecting and pairing together.
Loren's notes: "As a lover of glass, I have been utterly captivated by opaline glass boxes from the day I first laid eyes on them. Their unreproducible colors, their rarity and their unique history makes them not only jewels themselves but a precious piece of world history. I am thrilled to offer these special pieces as part of our collection."
