This splendid salt cellar service comes in the original fitted box, with the Rue de fauborg address on the inside. The .950 sterling silver liners are decorated in Neo-Renaissance style with exquisite mascarons, pierced sides, sculpted bell-flowers and more. The cobalt glass inserts are in near perfect condition. And the 6 vermeil shovels have fork-like tips. The 18k gold plating covers .950 sterling silver bodies. There is some loss to the vermeil on the handles. The box is in excellent condition.
