Sorry. Can't help with the ID, but just wanted to say that's a beautiful find. They made functional things ornate back then and it makes them interesting. Another sliver of the past brought up and saved. Thanks for posting.

That rocks! I wasn't there for that hunt- but wish I was. Amazingly how the difference between cleaning pics shows the interesting details.
