The tapering fluted cylindrical body of the glass vessel is fitted with a wide silver rim and flat hinged cover; the handle is formed as a naturalistically cast and chased lizard and subtly attached to the glass. The lizard’s arched back forms the body of the handle, while its splayed feet secure the handle to the silver lid and the glass base.
