The body of the pot has two rope style handles either side and underneath are the Dutch marks for 833 grade silver. There is also a Letter 'F' on the lip that sits underneath the lid which denotes the date for 1840.
When opened the golden gilt interior is visible and adds to the gorgeous appearance.
A very lovely and unusual Pot in superior antique condition. No dents, marks or repairs to the silver.
