Exquisite is the word for this pair of open salts! Beautiful repousse sterling silver cases, gold washed interiors, decorated with bow topped strapped cartouches accented with floral foliate sprays. Ribbed body with an upper gadrooned edge and a lower edge of cross ribbon straps. The four feet comprised of scrolling acanthus with laurel sprigs and bell flowers. Simply superb! Set accompanied with heavy blown glass liners and matching spoons. There simply is no substitute for first rate work. Incredible addition to your fine table setting, amazing gift.
Condition is very good. Light signs of use, not one notable flaw. Please note that the cartouches are without monograms! The aged patina is remarkable. Please see photos for dimensions and marks.
