Description and Details
We are delighted to offer this unique pair of solid silver Victorian salts made by Robert Hennell in London, 1870.
The pair presents unique Abercorn design - quatrefoil motifs decorated between trellis of grooves. One portion within the trellis is left plain for a cartouche that has not been engraved and left blank.
The body of the salt sits upon a widened pedestal foot with beaded decorations around the circumference. The interior of each salt is fully gilt with a rich tone of gold, not only contrasting the exterior silver colour but adding a layer of protection from the contents which may tarnish the silver.
Each salt is fully and clearly hallmarked with full English hallmarks on the base underneath the bowl. Above: Other rare examples of such decorations used on a large goblet and mustard pot (Other items not included).
A wonderful pair for those wishing to acquire an elegant manner to store and display your favourite condiments on a dining table or as part of interior decor.
