Victorian Sterling Silver Salt Dishes. This beautiful set comprises two small salt dishes and spoons which are made from sterling silver. The dishes are of shell-form with richly gilded bowls and they stand on 3 ball feet. The spoons have gilded shell bowls to match and ball terminals. All pieces are hallmarked for Birmingham 1897 with the makers mark of Saunders and Shepherd. The marks, though, are tiny and not too clear due to the gilding applied on top of them. This set is presented in its original maroon-coloured case with push button clasp. The interior is lined with blue silk to the lid and blue velvet to the base. The silverware is in lovely condition with no dents or dints to the dishes and both stand nice and level without a wobble. The spoons are also in good condition although there is a slight kink to the stem of one. The gilding is rich although there is some wear to it in the bowl of one spoon so it appears a bit duller than the other. The case is in good order with working clasp. There are some areas of scuffing to the exterior. There is no wear to the linings but there are some light stains to the silk where it has rested against the dishes.
