This item was for sale on ebay.com in February, 2010 with the following description:

Very nice cuspidor or spittoon made by Warwick for the Albert Pick Company of Chicago, a major hotel supplier in the early part of the 20th century. About 7" in diameter measured at the top and just under 5" high. Weighs just over 3 pounds. Very good condition with some minor scratches and tiny spots of discoloration, but nothing at all major, displays very nicely.

I neglected to 'follow' this auction and therefore do not know the price it sold for.
