Joseph Inwald Czech Republic Double Diamond Marigold Powder Jar
The Double Diamond pattern was made around the 1920s by Josef Inwald and in the main consists of items for the dressing table. They are only known in Marigold. This company was recognized for its extremely high quality Carnival glassware which, without fail, had the most tremendous electric iridescence.
Double Diamond is a very deep geometric cut pattern consisting of a large oval shape with diamonds in the center. If you look at the two photos of the lid of this powder jar, you can see just how deep cut the pattern is. You can also see the amazing iridescence that they are renowned for.
The bases are always ground but very highly polished to the point of being almost mirror like.
This powder jar measures 3" high, 3.5" across the top opening, and has a base diameter of 2.25".
