INDEX ALL SILVER
DESCRIPTION Pair of antique English Georgian solid sterling silver cauldron salts with blue glass liners, gilded interiors, embossed decoration and hoof feet. The gilded interiors safely give you the option of not using the liners. I would always use the liners for salt but maybe not for less reactive contents such as chilli flakes.
Note: the liners are custom made and only fit one salt. If you get it wrong one liner will be a challenge but not impossible to remove. However, you need to push with moderate force to get the wrong liner in so this should not be an issue.
SILVERSMITH David Mowden
DATE or HALLMARK 1766
ASSAY OFFICE London
WEIGHT in GRAMS silver 78, total 161
WIDTH 2 ", 60mm
SILVER STANDARD 925 sterling silver
CONDITION exceptionally good with thick silver and, unusually, no engraving or erasures. Repairs to some legs/feet as is to be expected with cast silver of this period.
Tip: should the legs ever get bent do not be tempted to ease them back for they will break. Cast silver is brittle. Much better to have your silversmith (or mine) do it for you, the cost is minimal.
