Ribbed Glass Vanity/Powder Jar With Art Nouveau Celluloid Lid.

Early 1900's Powder jar. The lid is brass with a celluloid inlay. Celluloid was used in the late 1800s and early 1900s until it was replaced by Bakelite. Bakelite was less brittle than celluloid.

But this makes the remaining celluloid pieces collectible. There aren't as many of them.

The design is Art Nouveau, not Art Deco, which would put it before 1920. (Nouveau is flowery and Victorian. Deco is geometric and stylized.)

The design was not created by a graphic artist on Photo Shop. It is not symmetrical. Its beauty is in its imperfections.

The ribbed glass is perfect.

A bit of patina clings to the lid.

The inside of the jar is lined with what appears to be waxed cardboard.

The dusty turquoise juxtaposed with the deep salmon red of the flowers is just beautiful and very period.

Use it for trinkets, jewelry, gifts.

A perfect complement to an aqua blue color scheme.

Beach house decor.

Cherish this. It's over 100 years old!
