Not so very long ago, rotary dial phones were everywhere. A very special gift for a phone user was a sterling silver handled phone dialer, and this one by Webster is quite handsome and is a collectible from the mid century era. It measures 3 1/8" long and is sterling silver with a very dark cobalt blue dialer ball. The handle is engraved "Moss Showboat" with the date "5-18-63" beneath. We've googled these words and the date many times and haven't been able to determine anything definitive about the engraving. The opposite side of the handle bears the Webster Sterling name and logo.
If you're a phone collector (or rotary phone user) or know someone who is, this is a great go-with piece.
