S. Cottle was in business from 1865-1920 per Rainwater. Super present for Grandma as the sterling lid will hold a picture of that special grandbaby. I have a picture of a niece inserted. Lid probably held an ivory miniature or porcelain floral circle at one time. Sterling lid is in excellent condition & has hallmark on interior. Lid fits jar-feel drag in some positions when removing-will fall off if held upside down. The glass jar has a sterling rim original to piece-note hallmark. It has a lovely hand cut pattern in very good plus to excellent minus condition. Three of the fan like patterns have a facet edge approx 1/4" long with damage approx 1/32" to top of facet or 1/16" down side of facet. When held at correct angle to light five of the raised diamonds in the area below fans have chips-but no raised diamonds are missing! Jar appears to have fallen on this side. Please keep the chip measurements & total number of diamonds in a pattern section in mind! With the jar sitting on a table you don't really see this. I am inspecting for disclosure. We think it is lovely & had no problem with buying it. There are other occasional nicks approx 1/32" big & a 1/16" chip to star pattern on bottom. Size 3 1/2" tall x 4 3/4" at widest point. Circa 1900. Please read ABOUT US & TERMS OF SALE before purchasing.
