Figural salt dip in the shape of a sea shell, with beautiful details. Marked 800 with Crescent Moon and Crown, and Eagle hall mark. Made in Germany, 19th century. The size is individual salt dip, salt cellar, 2 inches long, 1.25 inches high. The sea shell sits on 3 ball feet. Look at the fine detailing on this piece. Gorgeous . The interior is gilt. Condition is excellent, wonderful because it's over 110 years of age. I did not polish because I like to present an antique in tarnished, honest condition. This will polish up perfectly, just like sterling silver does. Besides, you can see the excellent details when some tarnish is left to give contrast. 17 grams of silver. If you are a collector of antique salt dips, this is an unusual example to add to your collection.
