This is a wonderful older piece of Wilton Pewter that retains its original paperwork as you can see in the pictures, and which identifies the pattern of Queen Anne and the molder, Loren Hancock. It dates to the 1970s and is an interesting covered container with a royal seal on the top of the finial or knob on the lid. It was most likely to intended for use as a tea caddy or container for holding dry food, modeled after some of the older pewter ones from the Queen Anne era, with these interesting finials on the lids. It stands about 6.25 inches high and is 3 & 3/8 inches across the opening at the top.
It is in excellent unused condition and retains its original paperwork, telling us that it was made at the original Wilton Brass Company in Columbia, PA. Hancock was a master molder there and his designs are harder to find and more unique than the standard Wilton dinnerware or kitchenware, and were usually purchased locally in Columbia, PA.
