This is a wonderful small glass jar with a sterling silver top. The octagon shape glass is very clear. The lid is square with repousse of flowers. The underside of the lid is vermeil finish gilded gold wash over silver. The size is 1 1/2 inches diameter (base) by 1 1/4 inches high by 1 5/8 inches for the lid). There is one little nip on one of the corners on the base but that does not distract from this piece. The sterling lid has no dents or scratches. The rim around the silver is marked wit a "W" and "STERLING" A lovely jar with many uses. A gorgeous gift for that special someone.
