The patina on the metal is the most desirable green/brown with some reddish highlights. The stained glass is the green/white opalescent Favrile glass.

This is a very nice utility box in better than excellent condition. When these are found there is usually some kind of damage to the glass. This one has None!! I believe the Pine Needle pattern to have been the first of the Fancy Goods product lines made at Tiffany Studios. Tiffany started using a 3 digit numbering system after 1902. Since this has a 3 digit number I can date this to have been made circa 1902-1915.
