  1. “viles” — mispelling of “vials,” as in small enclosed containers.

    “dresdens” — Paraphrased google search results, dresdens ornaments, named for the part of Germany producing them, showed up in the 1860s. They’re basically heavily embossed, die-cut paper, colored gold or silver. They were produced in flat and 3-D variants.

    Google is your friend.

  2. There was some catalog (forgot what now, maybe Troll or Childcraft?) that my mom would get sent to the house when I was growing up in the early 90’s that had something very similar to this jar. It was just a jar of … stuff a kid could use for crafts.
