This is for a superb vintage novelty set of salt and pepper shakers in the form of 12 bore shot gun cartridges. They are made of solid sterling silver with the bases been silver gilt and hallmarked as well. They are fully hallmarked for Birmingham 1987 with lion passant and makers mark for J B Chatterley and Sons Ltd. They are heavy gauge silver and the bases are particularly weighty so they wont easily be tipped over. The condition is as shown in the photos, they obviously have been used but over all are very nice. The bases unscrew and screw together as they should. They would make the perfect present for any shooting or hunting fan. The size is a complete replica of a real 12 bore cartridge. Height 5.6 cm. Diameter of the base is 2.6 cm. Combined weight is 80.5 grams. Sorry but I will not post to China. The item “Hallmarked Solid Silver Novelty 12 Bore Gun Cartridge Salt & Pepper Shakers” is in sale since Tuesday, July 24, 2018.
