This silver sugar caster is a very good gauge of silver, fine quality and in excellent condition.

Full hallmarks struck to the surface have wear, in keeping with age; the maker's mark is worn and illegible.

The full hallmarks to the cover, including the maker's mark are all very clear.

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