Hall Elton & Co Triple Silver Plate Pickle Castor Embellished Antique Read:
Hall Elton & Co Triple Silver Plate Pickle Castor W/ Rose Tinted Glass Jar. This is an interesting piece- the company first started making things in 1836 . This has got to be 160+ years old?it's amazing it has survived.
The ring just above the base of this Castor depicts an outdoor setting - fowl (Pheasants?) with flowers and a fountain. My guess is that it was an extra cost for this work. This Castor is very solid at 1 lb. 7 ounces before packing.
The under side of the base has the maker's marks and reads "Hall Elton & CO" "Wallingford, Conn" "Treble Plate" 0 677 . The marks are somewhat readable, but not perfect by any means(see pics).
The glass jar (4" tall by 3" wide) appears to be slightly rose tinted.The top dome / Lid piece has a slight oval shape to it. It also has a beautiful engraved name- Whitney.
Castor is 9 1/8" tall at the top of the handle, the width inside of the ring is 3 1/4" and the base width is 4".
There are going to be obvious condition flaws due to the age of this item(scuffs, dings, tarnish and scratching), but it's in good condition for the most part.
