GREAT C F MONROE GLASS NAKARA PIN TRAY WAVECREST

Unavailable
Nice and rare C F Monroe Nakara pin tray or box bottom. This little beauty measures 4.5" across and is in very good condition with just some minor wear here and there. Circa 1900.

More scarce than Wave Crest, Nakara is frequently found in quite simple shapes with deep, rich background colors accompanied by beaded and raised enamel rococo scrolls. Beading is a characteristic of Nakara, although sometimes a mixture of beading, Nakara pastel background, and Wave Crest decoration appear on one item. Although Nakara is usually found with an acid finish, pieces may be encountered with a glossy surface; these are quite rare. Transfers of portraits, scenes, Gibson Girls, and Kate Greenaway figures are extensively used in Nakara pieces. These are quite beautiful, and command high prices. Occasionally portraits and scenes are fully hand decorated.
