This is a very pretty little vanity item.

It is a little silver lidded pot - with a thick clear glass interior.

The pot lid closes with a heavy external hinge, as photographed.

The pot closes very securely and firmly. It stays shut.

The interior is made of thick clear glass - and this is cased with a hallmarked silver exterior.

The inside of the lid has a gilt wash.

Dimensions: height is just over 2 1/2 inches (6.5 cm). The diameter is just over 1 1/2 inches (4 cm).

The silver is hallmarked for the year 1900 - and consists of intricate scrolling foliage. There is a shield on the front - where you could add your personal monogram. It is currently left black.

The maker's mark is very small - and I have that it reads: A.W.P (for Arthur Willmore Pennington). They made small silver vanity items such as this little silver bottle or container. They were based at Northampton Street, Birmingham; and subsequently at Augusta Street, Birmingham

I am not sure what this little pot would have originally functioned as - but probably would have been an item for a fine lady or gentleman to take travelling. It might have originally stored such personal items such as hairpins or toothpicks.

As you can see from my photographs - it is in lovely antique condition.

The silver finish is much shinier than in these photos.

A great wee item to add to your collection of special silver bottles.
