comment This item has be very old. Based on the shape it must pre-date the catalogue items of the 19th century and so I have estimated it to be nearer 1770. Not home made, but assembled by a craftsman because of the rolled lip. Possibly my oldest item. Note the 18th century castellated folded join.
