A relatively large item, this piece measures 4 1/2" wide and stands 3" tall.

It is a dresser jar made c. 1900 by Newark, New Jersey's William B. Kerr & Co., whose "mace" emblem, "Sterling," and model number "7200-4" are stamped on the edge of the silver lid, which by itself weighs nearly 2.1 T. oz.

The bulbous glass base is panel cut with a star pattern on the underside.

The lid is relatively plain, with a rimmed and scalloped edge and a line script "EP" monogram in the center.

In excellent condition, the glass remains clear, bright, and free of flecks, chips, or flea bites. The underside shows slight scuffing. The lid is without bends and fits snugly on the jar. The finish is warm and even, but there are several very shallow dings in the otherwise smooth surface.
