Saucer

<< >>
Description
Repousse chased, circular footed saucer with everted rim, rounded booge and domed or boss well on an applied beaded foot ring. Saucer is divided into four sections, each containing a pair of flowers inside ruffled C-scroll reserves. Well interior is struck with three marks: a left-facing bear rampant and raised letter "I" in a circle, the incuse serif letters "EB", and the Old English or gothic letter "D" in a circle.
Cup and saucer, DL*392737A-B, were part of the ceremonial silver used at the Feast of the Passover by the family of the donor, who was born in Lithuania in 1889 and arrived in the United States in 1908. Her father's parents gave the pieces to her mother as a wedding gift.
