This is a handsome, heavy flip that will likely appeal to collectors, both because it is an early one and very hard to find, and because the lid has more wear to it than some buyers might be comfortable with. It is a gorgeous, clean bowl with that rich magenta band that is surrounded by thin gold lines. The bowl is in excellent condition and there is only some slight wear to the gold lines. (Typically you will see these bowls with outer pin lines of the same color as the broader band of color.)
The lid is heavily scratched from use and cleaning with some of the copper base showing through in many spots. You can see this in the photos. Likewise, the knob shows plating loss but is very strong and secure. What is unusual about the lid is its unique keyhole-style notch for a spoon, and I’ve hardly ever seen this in a flip-top bowl.
Though this is a scarce pattern, I would encourage anyone who is interested in it to use it and not just set it aside for display. I think it will still provide a lifetime of service!
The piece is about 5 7/8” in diameter and 3 5/8” high, not including the knob.
