Pairpoint Amberina Caster

Fabulous signed “Pairpoint Mf’g Co quadruple plate” pickle caster.  The insert is amberina thumbprint with a lovely hand painted floral design on the front.  The fancy base has open work on the sides and top along with the original tongs.  Most likely used originally for pickles.  One of the best!    Circa:  1880.   Dimensions:   10.5″ H   x   5″ W.   Condition:   Silver plate has original tarnish and could be polished if you wish.   The glass insert has several VERY minor chips on the inside of the top rim.  This is quite typical and they, of course, can’t be seen with the top on.    Price:  $1495 138_1 138_2 138_3 138_4 138_5 138_6 138_7
