Antique French Napoleon III or Grand Tour Mother of Pearl Half "Egg" Double Open SaltAntique French Napoleon III or Grand Tour Mother of Pearl Half "Egg" Double Open SaltAntique French Napoleon III or Grand Tour Mother of Pearl Half "Egg" Double Open SaltAntique French Napoleon III or Grand Tour Mother of Pearl Half "Egg" Double Open Salt

Delightful antique 19th century French Napoleon III Grand Tour souvenir mother of pearl double open salt, dore bronze ormolu wire footed with two "half-egg" shaped shells! What a wonderful little piece, marked with what appears to read "Houlgaly" and surely a Grand Tour souvenir of the era. Delicate polished mother of pearl, entire half shells with a thin and equally delicate wire framework & feet...amazing that it's survived in such fantastic shape!

Very Good Condition! There is only one small chip to the rim of the half shell, near where one of the wire hooks curves around the edge. The engraved script is missing most of the ink or enamel and is hardly legible. See pictures for measurements.
