This lovely antique Victorian tall dresser jar features a cut crystal base topped with an ornate sterling lid detailed with a repousse design of raised scrolls, flourishes, and flowers. The center cartouche is engraved with the initial C. The inside of the lid is lightly gilded.
The silver used for the lid is thicker and more substantial than that found on most vanity jars.
Measurements: 5” high x 1-1/2” wide across the top of the lid.
Hallmarks: maker’s mark for Charles James Fox, the lion rampant representing the sterling silver content, the city mark for Chester, and the 1898 date letter.
Condition: tiny hard-to see chip on the base, some dark very stubborn spots of tarnish on the lid, a textured spot on the monogram. The sterling has a soft, warm, original finish with no buffing or machine polishing.
