Charles Chesterman, London, 1769



   Rare, the small round pail with a foliate pierced body supported by upright staves, between reeded foot

 and upper rims, surmounted by a pierced braided handle; period blown amethyst glass insert (probably original),

with good interior and footrim wear, and snapped pontil


Condition: Excellent; two minor stable manufacturing cracks to staves, shown in the above oversized images;

glass insert also in excellent condition; excellent marks


Note :

Silver cream pails are somewhat rare small basket or tub form vessels, some reportedly with an accompanying cream ladle. 

They are also classified with sweetmeat and sugar baskets, and may have served multiple purposes,

including vessels for clotted and Devon creams. 


This beautifully made pail is composed of vertical silver staves connected by intricately arranged scrolling foliage,

lined with a hand blown amethyst glass liner that appears to be original, having adequate wear, bubbling and a snapped pontil. 


 4” High x 3” Diameter / The Silver, 2.9 Oz.
