How do you like my Stevens & Williams piece?
Sorry about the image quality, it's night, and I couldn't wait to take pictures tomorrow in the day time to post this.
It measures 9.5" tall. Green over pink. Intaglio. Marked on bottom. Sterling stopper. Stopper hallmarked. Great condition.
I look forward to your input and observations.

Your excitement is completely understandable, but is there any chance you might try to take better pictures now, so we can admire it properly?

Welcome to the gmb, and thanks for starting off with something SO special and for showing it to those of us who might never see such a thing. :)
Cheers, Sue (M)

The sterling silver has the Gorham date mark for 1887.

I don't know of anywhere called Gorham with (or without) a hallmarking office.
What are the "logos" on the hallmarks?  :)

One should be careful not to assume the date of a piece of glass is the same as the date of a hallmark on bits of metal stuck to it. The glass could pre-date the silver, which is a later addition.

Hi ,
            Gorham hallmarks are American and are frequently found on English pieces exported to the US.

cheers ,
             Peter
