I really enjoy the "character" this piece offers. I believe it's Duncan and Sons #800 "Heavy Paneled Finecut" circa. 1883. Most collectors would prefer that it matches as a set; it displays better and would maybe be worth more. We treasure these sets today....but in their time...they were put to use on a daily basis. So if a Victorian-era housewife dropped one whilst salting her husband's dinner....she simply purchased a replacement. Maybe borrowed one from a neighbor.....enjoy!
