Lake Company of Berkeley, California and is numbered 48.

SIZE: Approximately 3" in height and 2-1/4" in width.

MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION: Plated brass.

MARKINGS: 48; GEORGE F. LAKE CO. BERKELEY, CAL; PAT. number on bar.

ITEM NOTES: This is from an ocean liner and nautical collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. ebay MDEX13 LAGEX7/13
