This is a gorgeous little pitcher. It's only about 3 1/2 in. high. Unfortunately the pewter top is loose. I'm wondering what was used to hold it to the glass? Glue of some sort? When was it made? Is it called "saw tooth cut" ? I thought I would sell it but have no clue as to its value and if I can fix it, we'll use it for maple syrup when we have pancakes!

    Thanks Mustangtony. I saw a sugar shaker, same cut glass, but with a silver lid, they wanted over $200 for it.

    it appears to be an individual syrup pitcher; sorry but I don't recognize the pattern right off. These tops were held in place with plaster of Paris. You can soak it water to soften the old plaster to make it easier to clean and then replaster it.

    The fitting is a type of white metal as it was called, not technically pewter. It was the base for the Victorian quadruple and triple plate. You could have it replated, but that can be costly, or you can just clean it up and enjoy its 100+ years of age. The tops of these are rarely found in pristine condition.

    I would leave it as is, plating would cost more than piece is worth. These are neat pieces. Pattern is "Notched Prism" cut by many companies during the Brilliant period of cut glass in America which was around 1875-1917. Your piece dates from around 1900-1905.
