A vintage silvered metal touristware comport with pictorial of Shakespeare's birthplace (under glass) at the centre. The upper part is pierced metal (probably silvered brass) and the lower part, which can be unscrewed from the upper, is mainly brass or bronze and has leaf detail, possibly acanthus, towards the supports.
We are not certain whether the upper and lower parts started out in life together.
The comport has been cleaned but might benefit from further cleaning. There is a little verdigris to the base (see photographs) but the comport is structurally sound.
It stands about 3.125in tall to the top of the pierced upper part, which measures approximately 7in in diameter. Exact age unknown but believed to date from the earlier part of last century.
