This is an exquisite silver pepper pot by Tiffany and Co, dated 1873 – 1891 (Directorship of Edward Moore).
The pepper pot is adorned with beautifully cast gilt dragonflies flying above water.
The texture of the silver has been worked to depict an image of water.
The lid of the pepper pot is adorned with another dragon fly culminating in a ringed knop.
The pot stands upon a circular pedestal base.
The overall design is quite astonishingly lifelike.
