This impressive preserve pot retains the original hallmarked push fit 'drum head' cover and is surmounted with an exceptional sterling silver finial modelled in the form of a pair of crossed drumsticks.

The cover is further ornamented with the contemporary bright cut engraved initial 'M'.

This preserve pot is an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional presentation condition.

The applied ornamentation is very sharp and the bright cut engraved decoration is very crisp.

Full American hallmarks struck to the underside of the base and to the reverse of the spoon all very clear.

Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this fine example of American silverware.
