Vintage Art Deco Sterling Silver Salt & Pepper Shakers with Monogram O to the Front
Dating to the 1920s or 1930s may I offer this solid pair of unknown maker silver salt and pepper shakers that feature an engraved O with a small flourish at the bottom. Of a tall height, the top lid to each unscrews easily so that the spices can be inserted. Definitely a colonial look about the pieces.
Condition: Being vintage, there are light marks of use, storage and time. The patina is wonderfully warm and I try to only lightly polish for photos. There are no major defects like dings, dents or ugly blemishes that might spoil the beauty of the silver. If a high shine is desired, all that's needed is another polish. Note: the insides of the shakers are tarnished.
Hallmarks: STERLING 22 on the base
Size: Height is 5-3/4"; width at the top lid is 7/8"; width at the center top (before tapering downward) is 1-1/4"; width at the bottom base is 1-15/16".
Weight: 101.8 grams the pair - solid silver, no glass insert
Final Comments: A stunning set.
NOTE: St. Louis is headquarters to one of the best consignors to my shop. They take in a lot of silver flatware and hollow ware as part trade for sale of their jewelry. Some of the pieces are wonderful and I want to save as many as I can from being scrapped so I will be offering as many silver items I can. When I can, I will beat anyone’s price on RL. I want to turn over the silver inventory quickly so I can keep loading in more. St. Louis was a boom city in the 1800s and the silver inventory here is legendary. For those who know, the 1904 World’s Fair held one of the largest competitions in silver design – all the big maker names of the day competed and a lot of the winning pieces stayed in St. Louis after the Fair ended. So keep watching my listings, I never know what I am going to have week to week – all I know is it will be varied, fabulous and deserving of a good home.
