Silver salt cauldron or mustard pot, hallmarked Birmingham 1933
Hallmarked sterling silver mustard or salt cauldron in a Georgian style with a wavy rim and four acanthus topped paw feet.
The cauldron was made by Synyer and Beddoes and was assayed in Birmingham in 1933.
The cauldron could equally be used for salt or mustard. Please note that there is no glass liner to this pot so it would be advisable to put a protective layer of grease-proof paper in the base before use to minimise the risk of corrosion by salt or acidic food, and wash in warm soapy water as soon as possible after use.
The cauldron would look delightful at the table with other silverware and is perfectly suited to dining room entertaining.
Maximum side length is 4.5 cm/1.75 inches. Height is 3 cm/1.1 inches. Silver weight is 29g,
The cauldron is in good vintage condition. No dings or dents. The surface is dulled to the inside due to contact with acidic contents. Surface scratches as to be expected with age.
