Originally a joke about the Edwardian French delicacies frogs legs and escargot, now its just a interesting and amusing salt cellar. A frog drags a snail shell, complete with freeloading bug off to his hiding place. The well is gold washed to protect the silver from the salt, and it can be used with a salt spoon or just a pinch of your fingers. Another piece for your table that will have guests asking where DID you get that? A magnificent brand NEW hand made substantial Silver plated Salt Cellar in the shape of a frog and snail shell by Francis Howard & Co, Sheffield England. The feel and look of this piece in the hand is incredible, its strength and solidity 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.
