At first I thought it was silver plated but after polishing it I realized that it was most definitely sterling. I did take a fine file to one area on the rim and was not able to see any base metal. The silver ornate top piece sits on a pale blue frosted ribbed glass base. At the top of the lid is a standing horned cow / bull and on either side there is an engraved panel. The engravings show different initials but the same date - Juni (June) 1863.

Possibly awarded as a prize or possibly a wedding gift. Due to the spelling of'June' as'Juni' I deduced that it was Dutch in origin. It comes in excellent condition with no chips or damage. It stands 5-1/4" tall x 5-1/4" in dia.

The silver lid weigh 59g. Tracking is available upon request but at a much higher rate. This service is reliable and very rarely have I had any problems. Bermuda's postal service has suffered severely during the Covid crisis and our postal system was down for almost 5 months.
