An Aesthetic Movement design Victorian era pickle castor, circa 1880. Signed Middletown Plate Quadrupleplate, marked 94, hard white metal.
Approximately 4 1/4" diameter x 11" high
Antique original condition with all pieces are in place. There is a dent to the lower edge of the lid, nicks to the underside and a chip to the base of the glass jar. None of the damage to the glass is easily seen when the jar is in place on the stand. I have not attempted to clean or polish this piece, so I have not determined the presence / extent of any loss or damage to the plating.
A note about polishing - As collectors of vintage and antique items often value the time imparted patina on metal surfaces, I will leave it to you to decide its appearance. I may lightly polish an area of a piece if tarnish conceals metal purity or makers' marks.
