This beautiful candy box and cover is Cambridge’s line #3500/57.  The colour is an opaque pale pink, Cambridge’s Crown Tuscan. The hand painted decoration was created by Abels, Wasserberg and Company (AWC) and is part of their Charleton line. The decoration is called Roses and Bows (I think).

Learning about AWC was new for me.  I always thought that the company itself was called Charleton.  I see that there are a couple reference books about the company, but I don’t collect enough examples of their work to buy a text.

The hand painted details and the gilt are still in amazing shape.

The AWC label is present on the bottom on the piece. I imagine the label might identify the production year, but I do not know what the numbers signify.  This is where the text would come in handy!
