COMMENTS: Just purchased from a local estate. Open Salt with a Glass insert and a silver spoon. The salt has English hallmarks on the bottom. This piece features a silver holder that stands on three short legs. It also has a fitted col bolt blue glass liner. It measures 1" in height and the diameter is 2" in width. The spoons measure 3" in length and are hallmarked inside the bowl IL, anchor, lion, C. They are in wonderful estate condition. There are a couple of small dimples in the silver. At grand dinners individual silver, electroplate or glass salt cellars with spoons were placed above every place setting. It was just as correct to offer one salt cellar between two, which would still enable guests to have easy access to the condiment. Salt cellars could be purchased in a huge number of styles, from Gothic to Neo-classical, to match the consumer's taste or the fashion of the moment.
