A pair of antique English Britannia standard casters by Samuel Welder, both hallmarked from London in 1721. A pierced pepper caster as well as a blind mustard caster. Rare today to find a mustard caster in its original untouched for just as it was in early Georgian times. They each carry a family crest which we have not researched. In good clean order with no damage. One is pierced with the holes open, the other is pierced but a sleeve has been fixed to the inside, not damage but made this way as it was intended for mustard , not mustard as we know today but compressed powder which was then taken out by knife and mixed with vinegar on the plate. The castors were made to look the same as a matching set, but one is intentionally sleeved to keep the mustard dry in damp old houses. A super looking pair with each standing 140mm tall.
