These little antique goblet-shaped salts are lovely. (See photo of label inside dark blue velvet-lined lid). Used in an era when it was popular to entertain in high style, a personal salt cellar was offered at the place setting of each guest. From the photos, you can see that the silver salts are beautiful. I n the interest of full disclosure, though, this item is not for you if you are looking for a perfect presentation box. Though the box is has certainly seen much better days, the set can be displayed nicely if the lid has a bit of unseen support. As evidenced in the first photo. I purposely did not polish these salt cellars so that you can see the patina of century-old silver. The item “Set of 12 Antique Silver Salts in Original Presentation Box.
