Gift of Samuel E. Haslett
Urn-shaped bowl with square plinth, circular stem and ovoid bowl. The circular cover terminates in an urn-shaped finial. There is a narrow scalloped border around the circular base and around the cover. Two other borders of small, repeated patterns encircle the rim of bowl and cover. Around the bowl festoons of leaves and flowers are arranged, ascending to three peaks. From two of these peaks, medallions are suspended by knots of ribbons; script initials are enclosed in them.
