Measuring 4 1/2" in diameter and standing 3" high, this circa 1908 dresser jar has a brilliant cut glass base with a solid sterling silver lid that by itself weighs 2.0 T. oz.

It was made by Gorham, whose "lion, anchor, G" emblem, the word "Sterling," and model number "D1656" appear on the lower edge of the cover.

The cover is domed and acid etched in a design that includes various blossoms, acanthus leaves, and other elements set against a double band. The area around the etching has all been factory darkened to highlight the portraiture.

The center has an "EKB" monogram in block lettering that is suggestive of the Arts & Crafts style emerging in this period, while the underside is finished in a bright gold wash.

The glass is cut in a design that includes four "starbursts" or "sunbursts" on the sides.

The piece as a whole is in excellent condition. The silver shows no wear and has a warm finish. Apart from one pinprick dimple on the edge, it is without bends or dents. The glass is clear, bright, and without any cracks or chips. There is one small spot of roughness on the edge of the lip under the lid, and perhaps three fleabites on the cut areas of the body, found only under close examination.

Please note, item 3093f is a companion sterling silver tray.
