c.1882 Reed & Barton, no.665 silver-plate dolphin footed with archangel columned pickle caster in very good to excellent condition has the number 665 stamped on its underside along with the wording MFD & PLATED BY REED BARTON. It stands 9 1/4 inches tall with its handle raised to the carry position and is a mixture of oxidized and bright shining silver plate as it is shown in its lightly hand polished original condition. The diameter of the high polished silver-plate pad on which the insert sets is 3 1/4 inches while the the distance between the backs of the archangels where the insert would set is 3 3/4 inches. The distance between the front toes of two opposite dolphin column support is 5 3/4 inches. We have detected only a few areas of minor wear and most of that appears related to where the insert has sat for over 135 years.
Vendome pattern silver-plate scarce Reed & Barton pickle fork is included with your set, it is not the original one, but it is very like the original Vendome Reed & Barton pickle fork shown / pictured with it in the 1882 R&B Catalogue, ( photo no. 5 is a photo of the actual page in the catalogue with castor number 665 on it ) Both are in good to very good condition. Please find on photo 9, your fork displayed on a copy of the Dec. 2, 1884 Patent 15586. Some may well be thinking that this was 2 years prior to its patent being issued..and that's true. If you are interested see photo 7 for more information. The cut glass pickle jar included with your set is not original; it fits correctly and functions properly and is approximately age correct; it is also free of chips and cracks on our inspection.
