Creamer

Description
Rectangular, rounded-bottom creamer with a high, right-angled, reeded strap handle on a rectangular, stepped pedestal base with applied reeded molding for foot. Body consists of a wide die-rolled band of grapevine and oak branch decoration between a raised, flared neck with deeply curved rim and wide pouring lip and a raised lower section with bulbous upper half and two overlapping rows of chased points around bottom; a narrow, die-rolled band of laurel leaves is applied at rim. No marks; centerpunch visible. From a four-piece service, DL*383361-DL*383363A-B.
Hallmarks appear to be those for Chester, England, in 1814, although there is no town mark. Sellers are Liberty Browne (1776-1831) and William Seal (active, circa 1810-circa 1822) of Philadelphia, PA; in partnership, circa 1810-1811.
