Monumental Victorian Howard & Co. Sterling Silver Repousse & Crystal Dresser Jar
This is one of the most stunning Victorian dresser jars that I've ever come across! From a local San Francisco estate, the size of this jar and the workmanship is what caught my attention.
It was manufactured by Howard Sterling Company of Providence, RI. It is made of cut crystal with an extraordinary sterling silver lid decorated with repousse scroll patterns and a gilt interior. It has an engraved "D" monogram in the center.
The impressive jar measures a generous 6-1/2" in diameter and stands 4-1/2" tall. The crystal is in flawless condition with no chips or cracks. There are some very minor dings on the lid. The back of the piece is stamped, "Howard & Co. Sterling Silver".
The generous size of this jar works as an amazing display piece on a boudoir or vanity. It can hold just about anything from jewelry to trinkets.
Extraordinary in person!
