SILVER+ENAMEL PEPPERETTE JAPANESE SAMURAI HELMET OR POUNCE POT? This is an very rare and attractive antique. Silver and enamel pepperette or possibly pounce pot?? in the form of a Japanese Samurai warrior’s helmet. Unmarked but tests as Sterling silver. Very nice quality decoration and precise modelling. Top of helmet forms lid. I think it dates from around 1900? Silver is perfect – no chips, splits, restoration; the enamel is slightly discoloured in places; I suspect it may have been like this since it was made? Check out my other items.
