SOLD 1960s Morgantown glass #125 covered box in Bristol Blue.

Scarce form and color.  Bristol blue is a soft baby blue color that lightens and darkens with the thickness of the glass.
Morgantown (American mid-century elegant glass maker) called this form a "candy box" and advertised it with their modern decor line and barware line.  The oversized snifter with circus top cover is a rarely seen form.
Measures 8.5" tall, 5.5" wide, widest girth of 16".
In good condition.  The inner rim of the snifter bowl has some rough edges and one small sliver chip (see image 4).  The sliver cannot be seen when the lid is in place, and has not breached the outer rim. The rim of the circus top lid is flawless. The glass is clean and free of stains.  No other chips or cracks.
This beauty was hand-blown and hand-tooled in the 1960s.  The slightly inverted base was applied to the stem which was drawn from the bowl.  The lid was formed from a single gather.  Rims are polished.
