Lovely Egyptian Revival clamper features stylized double cobra heads that meet where the clamper closes. This is done in a silver tone metal, possible pot metal or pewter. The surface features an etched design and overall it has a lush patina . It is not signed Sterling but it is signed with an S in diamond (see pictures). My research has turned up nothing on this signature unfortunately. The inside measurement is 2 1/2 inches for a comfortable fit; and the piece is in excellent condition' clamper spring is nice and tight. Great find!
