This is a beautiful Pair of Vintage French Sterling Silver & Crystal Open Salt Cellars with lovely serving spoons! The body of these open salt/pepper cellars are made of hand cut crystal, finely decorated with delicate Art Deco style symmetrical patterns. It adorned with sterling silver rim mount on top. Hallmarked French Minerva No.1 mark, which guaranteed 950/1000 purity sterling silver, used in Paris since 1838. The crystal body is probably made by Baccarat. No mark, because baccarat did not start signing on their products till 1934.
The pair comes with two lovely antique sterling silver serving spoons! They are not a pair, but in the same size and looks good together. Hallmarked French Minerva No.1 mark and French silversmith maker mark on each spoon.
