Antique Ornate Sterling Silver (930 Fine) & Cobalt Blue Glass Wreath Salt / Pepper Shakers. These salt & pepper shakers are in wonderful condition considering their age. Marked “930 Fine Holland Sterling” and an “N” in a circle on the bottom which dates this at 1923. Only one of the shakers has a silver bottom cross piece with the mark. The sterling silver wreaths, flowers, lattice work, columns, leaves and heads are nicely detailed. They measure approximately 3 1/2″ and 4″ high, 1 1/2 in diameter. The two pieces are very similar but not matching, Grandmother preference as to tell the difference between the salt and pepper. One has ram’s heads around, the other has bull heads. On the hinged tops there are leaves and beaded edge which is continued around the base. The hinges work perfectly. The cobalt glass slides out easily for cleaning. I see no damage on either the sterling nor the glass. There is tarnish and residue of old polish, commonly seen in pieces of this age. As a policy, we do not clean nor repair antique/vintage items. Beautiful pieces, definitely bring compliments. Please check all of the pictures, they are a major part of the description and the best. All the photos are of the actual items(s) you will receive. Sometimes the photos are not as good in color and clarity as I wish they were. I try to check every portion of the item for any flaws or damage.

Almost all the items I sell are from estates and are in antique condition, may show wear and could have scratches, spots, tarnish, rubbed areas, minor stains, consistent with the age of the item(s).
