This gorgeous jar is made of .800 silver and was made in Europe, most likely Germany, in the 19th Century. It has several hallmarks, which I am not familiar with, but tests as at least .800 silver.
The piece is known as a condiment jar and can be used for jam, mustard, mayo or whatever you choose. It has the most fabulous silver work of leaves and bows, and even has three women's portraits, one on either side and one on the top of the handle. There is a clear glass insert to place your condiment. The jar sits on four hoofed feet and has a finial at the top. There is an opening for a spoon, but the original is long gone.
The piece measures about 4 1/2" to the top of the finial. It weighs 4.470 troy ounces without the glass insert. It is in wonderful antique condition.
