SALE Look at these adorable English Sterling Silver Individual Salt Shakers in their original Wedding Bells Box, perhaps given as a gift for a new bride many years ago. These were found in a Southern Illinois Estate, still in the original box, and there are 6 of them in this set. Actually, some might describe these as wedding bell shaped, which also may be the reason for this gift box. Others might compare the shape to a megaphone. I just call them wonderful little Sterling accent pieces, the perfect way to set a special table with one next to each plate.
The marking on the bottom has the Lion Passant which is for Sterling Silver made in England, and there is another figure before that which may be a crown. I am just not able to make it out clearly, but those two together often are found on Sheffield Sterling. They are also marked Sterling and 662. These are in great shape, but have not been polished. I merely wiped them with my silver glove, but I'm sure they would really polish up beautifully when cleaned. I just know some of my silver buyers prefer to clean the silver themselves, and some just love the natural tarnished patina, so I don't do much to them. One picture shows that on the bottom of one, it looks like a little dent, but otherwise they are just great! I have a thing for "little" pieces of sterling silver, as you might note in one of the pictures with a miniature champagne bucket that I use to hold monogrammed spoons. If you too like little sterling serving pieces or just to use for display, you may want to add these great salts to your collection!
I am always happy to combine purchases to save you on shipping, so please be sure to let me know if you are interested in other items I have listed. I have lots of great serving pieces in different patterns, plus more to get in my shop, so please check back often.
