Sowerby chamberstick Rd.4833. ID = Sowerby comport stand

For interest, a huge heavy Sowerby chamberstick marked Rd.4833  and with the peacock's head, registered 7th April 1884.

What you have, Anne, is not a large chamberstick but is actually the base (or stand) from a large 2-piece comport, the combination forming Sowerby pattern 1786.

 :o
That's a surprise, but makes sense given the size and weight of it.   I'll have to look out for the missing piece now.
Many thanks Fred.
