This is a rare Victorian pickle castor. The silver plate holder is decorated with figural leaves, berries and flowers on either side. The top of the handle has bead work which matches the lid rim. It stands 11 inches tall and is in great condition with the exception of a few flea-bites on the lip of the insert. The insert is Rubina glass which shades from a rich cranberry into a clear glass bottom. There is a swirl pattern in the glass along with beautiful hand enameling. This enameling consists of flowers and leaves in a gold leaf. Absolutely unbelievable piece to add to any quality Victorian art glass or silver plate collection.
