The decoration ornamenting the interior of sides appears to be original while the eagle,
cross flags and shield was likely added during the Civil War as was the gold leaf
scrolling that conforms to bowed ends of waiter. (24.75" x 17" x 1.5")
4.5" tall ivory bust; silver collar/band below bust engraved "Daniel Webster By Henry
Varner." Original glass eyes, hardwood shaft and brass ferrule with iron terminus. Bust
displays nice moderate toning; mentioned for accuracy are three vertical shrinkage
fissures and a tight crack above the silver band at approximately 7 o’clock. A striking
likeness that displays very well. (Length: 36")
Modeled by Pierre Stephan, the standing figure of radical, rabble-rouser depicted with right hand resting on pedestal with dark pink mantle thrown over left shoulder; scroll inscribed MAGNA CARTA and BILL OF RIGHTS on a column at his right hand, inscribed INo WILKS, a putto with raised arm holding stick with Liberty Cap, also a book inscribed LOCK on GOVT, on a scroll molded base. The figure is very good with typical small losses to gilt shoe and stocking ribbons; other superbly executed repairs. (Dimensions: 12” H.)

Large rectangular tray with central decoration copy of Samuel Drummond's "Death of Nelson" in oils; inverted onion shape cut out handles; gilt and painted leaves around outer border; English, probably Regency period; some bends along edge, noticeable loss of paint in central image and inner border, losses on outer border.

Light apple green flask with seed bubbles, light interior content stain. Free blown, round, open everted lip with ledge.

This silver presentation cup, with applied handle, features a bas relief profile of General Stonewall Jackson on front and is engraved on rim "W. H. Renaud Sep. 4th, 1869." The cup is marked on bottom "E. A. TYLER / NEW ORLEANS," dimples, overall very good. William H. Renaud was a member of the Company C [Ellison's] Confederate Guards Regiment who also served in Fender's Battery during the Civil War. In 1861 he is listed in the NOLA City Directory as an accountant. He eventually became a successful businessman.
E. A. Tyler was a jeweler and watchmaker on Canal Street who also advertised "silver and plated ware" but apparently was a retailer and not a silversmith.
