Silver condiment set, salt and mustard pots, cased set with spoons, gilt interior, gadrooned design, hallmarked 1918
Silver condiment set comprising a pair of sterling silver salt and mustard pots with condiment spoons, in an oval gadrooned style typical of their period. The pots are gilt lined to prevent corrosion to the silver when in use. The set is presented in a black leather look box with purple velvet and silk lining.
The pots are hallmarked for Birmingham in 1918. Their maker is a household name - the high street chain store, Boots! At the time it was known as Boots Pure Drug Company.
Boots was founded in 1849 and became the dispensing chemist and chain store we in the UK all know in the 1870s. It currently has around 1500 stores.
This set would look wonderful at the dining table - and would perfectly compliment other tableware in this elegant style.
The combined weight of the silver is around 51g.
Maximum height of the pots is 4cm (1.5 inch); Length is 6.5cm (2.5 inches).
Generally good condition. Minor pocks and fine surface scratches as you would expect with previous use. Small dent to the edge of one pot as per last photo, inconspicuous in the ornate design. Case condition is sound with some scuffs from long storage to the outside.
Postage will be by a Royal Mail Signed For service to the UK and a Tracked and Signed Service to International destinations. The extra level of service is necessary for to cover compensation in the event of loss or damage in transit.
