2 salt or mustard pots, Georgian cauldron style, 3 scallop legs
Two silver plated open salt or mustard pots in a Georgian-style cauldron shape, set on three curved legs with paw feet and topped with embossed scallop shells.
There is a beaded edge to the top edge. The bowls are undecorated and finished with a lustrous silver plating.
There is no maker's mark to the pots. They probably date from around the turn of the 20th century therefore late Victorian or Edwardian.
These pots in their charming traditional style would be a delightful addition to the traditional dining table.
Condition is good to commensurate with age and previous use. Bright and lustrous plating to the exterior with no plate loss, but a some pocks and plate wear to the inside where the plating has been in contact with acidic condiments. For this reason it is suggested that the pots are lined, perhaps with kitchen or grease-proof paper, before use and then washed as soon as possible after use.
Diameter is 5.25cm (2 inches)
Height is 3cm (1.25 inches)
