Victorian Silver Plated Pickle Castor, Reed and Barton , Etched Glass Insert, Silver Plated , Victorian Pickle Castor, Antique Pickle Castor C 1890.
What a great addition to your Victorian Silver Collection. Marked on base Reed and Barton and the number 1105.
This is a magnificent Silver Plated Pickle Castor with an etched glass jar that matches the flower design in the lid. It is footed and there is a lovely decorated gard all around. All in great condition.
SIZE – 25,5 cm H x 11,5 cm The Glass insert is 7,5 cm D x 10 cm H
CONDITION – Great Victorian condition. The glass insert has no chips, cracks or repairs. The silver does show signs of wear in some places, but really very little considering its age. I did not polish the silver since some buyers like the patina. One of the flowers lost a small part , but hardly noticeable.
Castor jars for pickles are glass jars about six inches in height, held in special metal holders. Castor jars became more ornate each year, and by 1860, they were cathedral-like pieces. They were a popular dinner table accessory about 1890. Each jar had a top that was usually silver or silver plate. The frame, also of a silver metal, had a handle that arched above the jar and a hook that held a pair of tongs. By 1900, the pickle castor was out of fashion.
