On offer today is a quite exquisite hallmarked silver pair of wondrous salts from the early 19th Century Georgian period. They are hallmarked to base rim and date to 1809 and from London. Maker’s mark is sadly poorly struck but might be for Robert Sharp. For reference of scale each salt pot is large at 2.75 inches in height and 5.125 inches wide. They are of highly attractive neo classical form and sit on an oval base. They are in fine order. The actual silver weight is a very good 275 grams (8.84 troy ounces) on this special set and each piece is made of thick gauge silver throughout. The overall condition is excellent on this splendid antique set of objects. Would make a lovely present and is offered with no reserve! Each is engraved underneath with the name FREETH. The sides are unengraved and always have been, definitely no erasures either.
