Completed sterling silver pot with lid

Silver pot with lid removedSilver pot with lidThe pictures show the first sterling round pot both with lid fitted and with the lid placed alongside, complete with my hallmarks.

The second pot, not pictured, is finished except for the making and soldering of a sterling dome to fit the collar I have made for the lid. For this second pot, I soldered the neck bezel using only the weight of an old file rather than wiring it up with binding wire as in the previous post - it worked rather better. And I was fortunate to find a cylindrical iron stake that was just the right diameter to allow me to exactly true-up both neck bezel and lid bezel.
