This piece is silver plated and has never been re-plated. It is from the late 1800's and is the real McCoy of holders. It stands 2 ¼" high and diameter is 2 ¼" at base. It is in good condition for the age of this piece. It is a collector's item and will only continue to grow in value. Check out all the pictures for a better look.
