Offered is a lovely crystal master salt and sterling silver salt spoon. These were found together and are being offered as a package but we know that there are collectors of both and will consider selling separately. Please inquire about individual pricing.
The lovely little spoon measures 4" long and is fully marked with the lion passant (London, 925), Gothic 'M' dating it to 1787, right facing George III duty mark and 'RC' maker's mark, Richard Crossley. Also 3 small circles which we believe is the journeyman's mark. In excellent condition with absolutely no dings, dents or damage. Hallmarks are clear and distinct. The condition is amazing for an item of 225 years! Weighs exactly 10 grams.
The crystal salt cellar is not marked and we are not at all experts in this area so can only describe the it to the best of our ability and will not attempt to date it.
Measures 2 3/8" square, 2 3/4" tall to the top of the lid finial and is quite heavy at 13 ounces. The inner diameter is 1 3/8". The lovely twisted swirl pattern forms scallops on the top edge. There is a small bruise in this area and is shown, and actually amplified, in the last picture. Otherwise in excellent condition.
