The circular stand has an applied, draduated, ribbed rim. Three double pad feet with cabriole leg support the stand.
Original owner is unclear, but according to an old tag accompanying the object, it was J. L. Lloyd, which corresponds to the engraved initials. No further information until it was offered for sale at Northeast Auctions, about 1998 – 99, and purchased by silver dealers Spencer Marks of Massachusetts. Purchased by the donor about 1999 and made a gift in 2002.
Anonymous gift in honor of Jeannine Falino
