hallmarked London, 1790-1791, by Walter Brind, of slightly tapering cylindrical form with reeded banding, the flat hinged lid with openwork shell billet, with double C-scroll handle and inset glass base, engraved with the arms (on the lid) and crest (on the body) of Emmott of Emmott Hall, Lancashire.
h. 7-1/4", l. 7", dia. 4-3/8"; 30.34 t. oz. (including glass base)

Condition

Very slight, very shallow bend on one side of the front edge of lid, about 1" long, but otherwise in quite good condition, with no other issues noted beyond some light wear consistent with age and use. Five or six tiny casting bubbles on one side of the handle near the junction of the two scrolls. Glass good with a couple of nicks but no cracks or chips. Excellent engraving. Hallmarked (on the rim) with: 1) the sterling lion passant; 2) the London crowned leopard's head; 3) the date letter "p" for 1790-1791; 4) the George III bust duty mark; and 5) the "WB" maker's mark of Walter Brind. Marks good, clean and legible, with the maker's mark slightly worn on the lower edge.
