We are pleased to offer this stunning example of early Sterling Silver.
This listing is for a Sterling Silver Cut Glass Condiment Set.
It is hallmarked. There is a monogram on one of the covers of one of the condiment jars. There is a monogram on one side of the sterling basket. The hallmarking is: the marker's mark JE. Then there are four more marks. One is a monarch's head facing left. Another is a lion standing on three legs with one leg raised and it is facing left. The third is a "b" and the fourth can not be identified.
The basket stand weighs 1 1/2 lbs. We cannot take out the wood bottom. We believe that the basket without the wood is about 18 ozs.
Basket stands 10 1/2" tall to the top of the handle and 8" wide.
This Sterling Set was made by John Emes in London in 1857.
It has SEVEN Cut Glass Crystal bottles.
The stoppers are exceptional with a bubble inside of them.
ONE OF THE BOTTLES COMES WITH A GOLD SPOON OR GOLD PLATED SPOON.
The spoon is also hallmarked by John Emes, London, 1857.
John Emes was a goldsmith and silversmith.
Sterling tops for bottles E and F are also hallmarked.
Bottle G is a replacement.
As with all vintage glass, you will see signs of use. Glass is in excellent condition. It does have a few very tiny pin pricks.
HAND BLOWN, WHEEL CUT, HAND POLISHED
