A very pretty chamber stick made of lower grade silver than sterling with good foliate and berry decoration to the saucer including acorns. There is a heart shaped aperture to the stick proper. It is finished with a reeded border to the rim. It is thought to be Dutch, the marks are not clear but the one looks to be a fish (lower 800 grade silver) with a key symbol denoting export.The other could be a date letter or the letter B for Utrecht. Please see relevant image and decide, these were the best images we were able to get because of the curvature and shine.
It is in good condition for its years but there are two small splits to the rim as shown which gives a slight distortion to the line. Displays well, a delightfully honest little piece possibly intended as a travel item: the stem unscrews to aid this. Makers and assay marks: please see images.
