A fine and impressive, unusual antique Victorian English sterling silver novelty pepper; an addition to our diverse silverware collection

This fine antique Victorian sterling silver pepper has a plain ovoid shaped form.

The body of the silver novelty pepper is embellished with impressive chased decoration depicting a cracked egg shell with a boy’s face and hands to the anterior surface and his feet and buttocks to the reverse.

The body has pierced 'pepper' holes in a hexagram formation to the upper portion.

This pepper retains the original fully hallmarked screw fit weighted base; which when unscrewed provides access to permit the pot to be filled. Please see image 7 for reference to hallmarks.

This novelty pepper is a fine example of its type.

Full hallmarks struck to the surface of the body and base, and part hallmarks to the interior of the base are all very clear.
