I will leave it to buyers to determine the origin and when it was made. There are small symbols in the area so you can see. The finial on the lid looks like a pine cone.
I think that the design using a little bump is perhaps called "hobnail". Measured to the top of the lid, the lid on the lid is not measured, measured at a height of 6.2992 in. Measure up to the top of the handle, it will be measured in 9.4488 in. International Buyers - Please Note.These charges are the buyers responsibility.
