Stamped TECO three times to underside. 9 1/2" H x 11 1/2" dia. Circa 1905. Provenance: private Nashville collection, by descent from Martha Ann Dillon (1911-2000), daughter of William Wesley Dillon (1866-1934), founder of the W.W. Dillon Shoe Company and W.W. Dillon Realty Co. Together with George W. Bennie, Mr. Dillon constructed the well known Bennie-Dillon Building on Nashville's Church Street.
