whilst we're on the subject of pieces with missing lids .......
Here's another couple of jars similar to the op's piece - both missing their lids unfortunately, but possibly of interest so thought I'd add them as examples of what are described usually as lidded sweetmeats/jars.
In view of the damage neither have any commercial value - other than the scrap value of the silver on the larger piece - both with a shallow depression under the foot, and dating to c. 1800 ish.
The smaller piece rings well when flicked.
The larger jar (6" - 155 m/m) seems unusual with the silver band (no hallmark) - I've seen many of these but not one with metalwork before, and the beaded rim is attractive. Might this be Continental does anyone think??
A very discreet decorative feature that I'd not been aware of seeing before is that around the outer edge of the collar/merese - on the smaller jar - there is the faintest of scallops - I've also just noticed this on a rummer from c. 1800 - so obviously a little touch of quality that might almost go unnoticed unless you looked very closely.
Had anyone else noticed this feature?
