The quality of the craftsmanship is superb, this would have once belonged to a wealthy Gentleman in the in the early 18th century and been used daily, this was many many years ago when times were so very different, if this could talk i bet it would have some fascinating stories to tell, it is so very tactile and once held it has the most wonderful feel. This will add something very special to any collection, my photos dont do it justice. This has no hallmarks which is normal for items crafted in this period, it has been tested and is solid silver. In lovely condition for its age, with just a little surface wear on the silver frame to the top , this doesnt detract at all from its rare beauty, just mentioned for accuracy.
