Measurements are as follows:

Height: 11.75"

Width at widest: 6"

Inside opening width: 1.75

Condition:  Very Good - The vintage piece is considered wearable but has some small surface flaws. The background opaline glass has an overall "smudged effect" that is common with light colored opaline glass. This gives it an aged look, but is not actual surface wear, just a part of the aging process of how this glass is composed. There is also wear to the gilded paint on the edges and a couple of small outer marks. Priced accordingly and still presents beautifully!
