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.
