Trinkets, candy, or even fancy soaps would look great in this classic glass basket box.

This delphite (an almost-aqua blue) milk glass piece depicts a resting cat on the lid that in turn rests on a fluted base. The piece measures approximately 5” L x 4” W x 4” H.

Excellent mold definition of the cat’s features and fur. No cracks or chips – only a bit of roughness inside from production. According to the mark, the piece was manufactured between 1981 and 1984. The delphite color is quite desirable – and very fun for spring.

The famous Westmoreland Glass Co. produced a gazillion (or should that be catzillion?) cat-themed covered baskets in various kinds of glass throughout the many years of its existence. It can be difficult to date these pieces since other companies besides Westmoreland used these molds and didn’t always bother to change the markings. The particular mark found on both the lid and the base of this piece is a circular “Westmoreland” with 3 parallel lines inside the circle. This mark was used when new owners took over Westmoreland in 1981. Production ceased in 1984, so the mark was only used for a few years.

Thanks for looking!
