Well….this is another piece that has been in my private collection for many years and I’ve decided to share it with you. I love its orb or globe shape. In researching this egg warmer I did not find any others that were round. All the other I viewed were egg shaped. The orb form continues as a theme with a matching globe as the knob on the lid that has, as does the main body, what we believe to be latitude and longitude marks. It also has orbs as feet and as supports for attaching the container to its stand. It has hallmarks and pseudo hallmarks on is underside. They are: an A1 in an oval establishing amount of silver used; a crown in a shield, this one dates the piece to pre-1895; an owl in an oval; EP in a shield, denoting electroplating; and TL & EM in a quatrefoil the trademark for Latham & Morton silver plate pieces. I used this fabulous piece several ways including a trinket box and on a shelf as object d’art. What will you use it as when you make it yours?
