This exceptional covered jar (relating in style and form to snuff mulls of the period) is the largest example of the early Scottish staved balaster (mull) shape that I have encountered. The treen cover is mounted with an ivory finial in the form of a crown. Remarkably the piece is in near perfect condition maintaining all of its' original staves, original lead lining, and base-tray.
Condition: Excellent. Small edge chips to base-tray. Two staves of the ivory crown have splits.
