Antique Wilcox silver plate pickle or relish castor in the shape of a lily pad, complete with silver plated fresh from the farm appearing pickle vines, with cucumbers and a frost cut to clear melon shape glass bowl; make this rare set a treasure; believing the bowl and castor are original to each other. (The castor came to me with a c.1885 Crown pattern Wm. Rogers pickle fork paired with it and which is used in the photographs.) The base measures 9 1/2 inches by 7 1/2 inches by 10 1/2 inches to the top of the handle. It is in lovely condition, very shiny with very little plate lose. There are a couple of tiny flea bites on the lid's edge and one anomaly underside the edge of the bowl, which, as best, I can describe it, since I couldn't get a photo of it, looks like a small slightly cloudy bubble on the rolled under edge of the lid. I cannot feel anything different there either but I must mention it to be forth right in my description. There are a few other typical antique blown glass anomalies, as one would expect to find and small ground slag areas on its inside. Its Victorian creators used a fabulous masterpiece for the finale for the lid and even have hidden in plain site a tiny winged bug on the finale too! Overall an amazing piece of history gone by.
