Very nice piece. Congratulations
Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add 'within the limits of the law' because law is often but the tyrant's will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual.

Do you have any idea of its age? Good looking measure.

"Do you have any idea of its age?"

My hunch, for what it's worth, is sometime in the first half of the 19th century.

Tonight I took a measure of the amount of 3F that it holds.  Minimum amount is approx. 10 grains and the maximum is approx. 60.
