This high standard compote is of extra generous size to show off its many virtues. The bowl is McKee and Brothers (1853-99) Shell pattern also known as Fans with Diamonds. It would date to c. 1880.

The ring of the lid and its weight indicate lead or flint. It is decorated with beautifully designed stippled fruits such as pears, cherries, apples, and berries with detailed leaves.

The compote is in very good condition, but the lid has a few small frits at the lip where it fits into the bowl. There are two small rough spots inside the lid which were probably manufacturing defects. The outside of the lid shows a very uniform scratch which also leads me to believe that it was a production defect. The compote consists of two molded pieces.

10 1/8" h approximately.
