ELEGANT VICTORIAN DOUBLE PICKLE CASTOR - VINTAGE

I hope you can get an idea of the highly detailed work in the photos. The silverplating itself is in very good condition. I cleaned the set up with a toothbrush using only dish soap and water. This set would polish up just fine. I will leave that choice to the new owner. The set includes the original tongs. The crystal jars are in the "Button & Daisy" pattern.T is no makers mark on the jars but they sparkle brilliantly. I'm quite sure they are pressed, but the quality is near to cut glass. I have examined them very carefully and t are no chips breaks, fractures, or any other flaws. They appear to be mint except for a light wear pattern on the bottoms. The handle of the frame is 11 and a half inches tall. The width of the holder is 10 inches at the widest point. The tongs are 7 inches long.
