Dessert was eaten with silver gilt during the Georgian period and we have no doubt that this rare piece was used on the dessert table. The piece consists, unusually, of three compartments, the main cream container, the domed cover and a rare circular stand. All of the glass pieces are beautifully diamond cut and the stand has a stylised flower head in the centre of the base. The stand and main body have silver gilt mounts which are decorated with herring bone designs. The domed cover terminates in a cast cow finial, indicating the use of the container. This is an extremely rare piece, as very few were made and even fewer have survived.

Height: 5.5 inches, 13.75 cm.
Diameter of the stand: 5 inches, 12.5cm
