ANTIQUE NUMBER SA1049084: A Fine Pair Of Mid-victorian Silver Salts Or Caviars

A Fine Pair Of Mid-victorian Silver Salts Or Caviars

£195    $249    €225
This is a pretty pair of good-size, mid-Victorian silver salts or caviars, made by Henry Hyde Aston, Birmingham, in 1864. Scallop-shell shaped, and retaining their original spoons, the ribs have fine repousse decoration. The bowls are supported on three stylised, sea-creature feet, maybe suggesting sturgeons or dolphins, and typical of the period. The spoons have barley-twist stems and scroll ends. These salts are in excellent antique condition, with no damage and no repairs. The hallmarks are very clear and show the same maker's marks on all four pieces. The salts were assayed in 1863; the spoons in 1864, as is often the case with sets. [Please note that there are some shadows, not tarnish, in the photographs.]
 
 
Length of spoons: 7cm (2.75 inches)
 
Dimensions of salts: 6cm x 6cm (2.25 inches)
