Hallmarked Silver, Etched Crystal Vanity Jar

Measurements: BASE DIAMETER: 2" - TOP OPENING DIAMETER: 1 1/4" - HEIGHT WITH LID: 1 1/2"

Clearly marked as "sterling" followed by a series of hallmarks which I am unable to read.

Jars such as this one were often part of a lady's vanity set which might include many different sizes of jars, bud vases, clocks, pin trays, etc. This jar is a single.

The lid is beautifully ornamented with beadwork design and two shield images incorporating a tiny flower and what appears to be a fleur de lys.

There is a monogram which, I think, reads RML. Not everyone appreciated monograms, but to me, they are part of the history of an antique.
