Here we have a wonderful and unusual pair of antique, probably European 800 silver figural fighting roosters or gamecocks salt and pepper shakers. These heavy silver shakers show fine detail throughout, really incredible detail. The pair are solid silver and not weighted or reinforced. Enlarge pics for the best details. The tallest one measures about 3 1/4″ tall to the top of head and about 3″ long at the longest point. The other is about 2 1/4″ tall to the top of the tail and 3 1/2″ long at the longest point. The combined weight of the set is 207.3 grams. The two are in very nice condition with no damage or repair. One of the tops (heads) of the shakers are slightly loose on the base. The interiors are tarnished but can be cleaned and show that they were used. Both are stamped 800 on the bottom of one foot and both have been tested and are fully guaranteed to be at least 800 in silver content.
