C1900 Double PICKLE CASTOR w/Meriden Silverplate FRAME & Phoenix BIRD Finials. Offered for sale is this unusual double pickle castor. The inserts are clear glass with a honeycomb pattern and etched floral decoration. The glass lids feature wonderful Phoenix bird finials. The jars measure 6" high to the top of the finials and about 3 1/4" across.The fit perfectly in the Meriden silver plated frame. The stand measures 13" high and 8 1/2" across at the base. The bottom has the maker's mark as pictured. Both the jars and frame are in very good estate condition. One jar has a flat rim chip and a nearly invisible hairline on the lid where apparently someone tightened the finial a bit too much--see enlarged photos to evaluate.
I have not cleaned or polished the silver but find no evidence of plate loss. There is a bit of wear on one side where the jar sits. This double pickle castor should be a fine choice for any collection and is offered without reserve.
