This master salt has wonderful design. The dolphin has a great shape with that beautiful curve to his tail and a great face. The tail is then attached to a large shell balanced and adhered to his back. As a final attention to detail both the shell and dolphin have texture giving the illusion of a ripple surface on the shell and scales on the dolphin. Under the dolphin there is even the illusion of soft waves in the water. We now only have one of these adorable master salt remaining.
The bone china is in excellent plus condition with no cracks, nicks, chips, scratches, abrasions or repairs. The rims have been viewed with a 10 power loupe and are all original. The rims on the foot have been viewed and are also all original.
Photo's 1-8 are of the 1963 salt. It is the green mark with the R and 13 dots. The edge on the shell is more pointed and it's dolphin scales and shell ripples are more in quantity and have a touch more depth. The base has a solid bottom.
Photo's 9 & 10 are of the 1955 salt. Which is NOW SOLD.
The salt measures 4 1/2" tall (top of tail) x 4 1/2" long (base rim to tail) x 4 1/4" deep (shell rim to rim).
