Rare Antique Early 19th Century White Metal Pomander Or Tea Ball No Reserve
January 30, 2019
Being offered For sale this Rare Antique White Metal Pomander or tea ball with No reserve. I originally thought this was a Tea ball but the open fret work is too open to keep tea leaves in. I showed it to a silver specialist friend who said it looks like a pomander due to its size and the double chains it is hung on. The ball is crafted in a white metal and is beautifully pierced i think by hand as there is some irregularities in the piercing work. It also has the number 32 stamped inside the lid i don’t know what this is for but worth mentioning. The lid is hinged and works well i think these are the original chains there are a few dints but this is to be expected with age. The ball measures 13.5cm around the middle and weighs 21.6 gms. Please study photos in depth as these are a part of the description. All measurements are approximate all stones have been measured with a Moe diamond weight calculator and a diamond spread sheet.
