A BEAUTIFUL Vintage, set of Sterling Salt & Pepper Shakers, the style is that of a octagonal vase with the threaded screw in lid acting as the finials, Very Elegant set! In consideration of their age I would consider them to be in Excellent Condition, needing only to be cleaned as there are No dents or deep scratches & no monograms. Marked for MUECK – CAREY CO. Of NYC, With STERLING & The Numbers 166, the 166 stands for the pattern number and from what I understand the STERLING stands for 925/1000 silver purity. Told they are from about Circa 1930- 1940’s They are about 5 ” tall with A width of about 1 1/2 ” Round weight free base, The weight on the combined pair I think is about 2.50 troy oz 78.1 gr. Inside a Diamond, then Sterling & the number 932? Marked with STERLING & numbered 988?
