A curious antique sterling silver salt cellar bowl, make for import by Germany, in a Romantic French style. The cellar features ornate flower work and curling lines; the piece is not monogrammed but there is space to personalize it. On the base the cellar has a crown mark and a letter mark, both which are Hanau import marks (from Germany). The side marks on the cellar are British marks from London, C&S ns , sterling Lion mark, R, F and the city mark. The maker is Robert James Chaplin & Sons, making this piece circa 1890's. The silver-work looks typically French as interpreted by the German silver-makers. This is customary of the Hanau silver. The stamp on the bottom of the piece is also what the German silver importers would consider a "French-style" mark, a crown with numbers underneath. This salt cellar is an individual piece, and it would also make a great bowl for holding personal items. Weighs 62 grams, or approximately 2 troy ounces. Measures approximately 2 1/2" x 1 1/2.
