We are offering for sale a very fine pair of Irish silver salt pots. These good-sized, cauldron form open salt pots are decorated in the Chinoiserie style. They stand on three feet in the form of a China man wearing a tall hat and sporting an impressive handle-bar moustache. They are heavily chased with matching Chinese scenes (including windmills and pagodas). These salt pots are fantastic quality with a really hefty weight. In addition, they have a gilt (gold-wash) interior to protect the silver from the corrosive effects of salt. They also each bear an engraved crest to the cartouche, which is a little worn but appears to be a crown. Please view our specialist site at antiquesilverspoons for a further large selection of fine quality Victorian, Georgian and earlier silver. 7.1cm (2.8″) diameter; 4.7cm (1.9″) high; 250grams 8 tr. Full set of Irish hallmarks (guaranteeing Sterling 925 standard silver) for Dublin 1830, made by William Nowlan. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any further questions.
