Theres an old expression that goes roughly I was so shaken up I couldnt remember if I liked salt on my eggs or not. There must be someone out there somewhere that doesnt like salt on eggs, but I dont expect to ever meet them. This connection is so strong a set of eggs with legs salt and pepper shakers seem a perfect complement to Francis Howards half egg on legs egg cup. These seem at first glance to be designed for the breakfast table, and indeed in Edwardian times that would be the only place they would be correct. Today of course you can use them on any table you like and everyone will have fun using them. You have to have salt and pepper on the table, so why not have them be a little interesting? A magnificent brand NEW hand made Sterling Silver (925) Salt and Pepper set by Francis Howard & Co, Sheffield England. It includes a Feature Hallmark (the makers mark and quality assurance stamps by the British government guaranteeing the silvers purity) that is large and designed to be an integral part of the look of the piece. The feel of this piece in the hand is incredible, the strength and solidity of it proclaim its high quality. Francis Howard is the oldest silversmith in England, founded in 1870 and still owned and run by the Howard family in Sheffield, the center of the English silver trade. While Francis Howard is not that well known in the US, they craft only the finest silver and crystal goods entirely by hand, with a quality that meets or exceeds such famous silversmiths as Tiffany, Cartier, Gorham or Asprey & Garrard, the Crown Jewelers to the British Court. While you may be the first to enjoy this high quality silver piece, you wont be the last: it will become an heirloom that will last long after us, and be as valued 100 years from now as it is today.
