I believe this wonderful jam pot early 20th century . It is encased in a silver plated holder with a hinged handle. The jam pot is removable from it's encasement. The pattern is floral with leaves on stems flowing in a vine like pattern. It comes with it's original spoon. There are hallmarks on the bottom of the jam pot and the silver plated encasement. I have researched the markings but have not been able to resolve the exact history. I believe the piece to be English in origin. The encasement is possibly Sheffield plate. Stamped on the metal is the letter L then the numbers 26810 followed by a crown with either the letter W or a lion symbol then letters P, G& S follow. Next to the letters someone has scratched the numbers 1807?? There is also the number 10 stamped on both the encasement and the lid. If someone can enlighten me on the markings I would greatly appreciate it. It is however a wonderful piece and in excellent condition. The porcelain bears a crown stamp with possibly the letters V and O and a blue punch mark. There are 2 other faint marks which I cannot decipher. The rim at the bottom of the jam pot has a tiny hair line crack that does not detract from the piece at all.
