Vintage Sterling Silver Enamel Pepper Pot. This beautiful novelty pepper / salt shaker is made from sterling silver in the figural form of a lady. Her blouse is finished with yellow Guilloche enamel and the skirt is in blue. The top half pulls out to open the shaker and the collar of the blouse is pierced with holes. It has Norwegian assay marks to the base for sterling silver (925S) with the tankard mark of the maker J. This silversmith began production in 1932 and the company is still in operation today. I would think this piece dates to around the middle of the 20. This piece is in lovely, usable condition and the top section fits securely in the lower. The only damage to the silver are two small dents to the top of the head. There is no damage to the blue enamelling. The yellow has some very small areas of blackening to each elbow on both sides. Ive looked at these areas under high magnification and there arent any chips. It seems, instead, that the enamelling where the spots are is very thin. Please see the photos below which show all areas clearly. PLEASE SCROLL DOWN PAGE TO SEE MORE IMAGES Approximate Measurements.
