This early 20th Dutch creamer is made of 833 silver and dates to 1914. Weighing over 198 grams, it measures about 6 ½ inches long. The height, at midbody, is about 3 ¾ inches, with a height at the top of the looped tail of 4 ¾ inches. Set with red cabochon eyes, most likely glass, this cow shaped creamer has one rare feature: a removable head. I have seen one with identical shape and detail which did not have the detachable head.
Lion passant mark with 2 indicates 833 silver. E on tail is 1914 date mark. It has a Minerva mark with an M, indicating Schoonhoven assay. The maker;s mark appears to be NC, which I have not been able to identify.
Engraved inside the lid, which has a stylized fly on it, “Holland 1916".
