Description


These impressive antique Victorian English sterling silver peppers are stylistically modelled in the form of shotgun cartridge/shotshell.


The upper portion of each pepper shaker incorporates an array of pierced 'pepper' holes to the recessed plateaued crimp of the hull/case.


Each pepper pot retains the original fully hallmarked screw fit detachable base; this indicates the fine quality of the pieces.


The underside of each piece bears the registration number '72241' in addition to a tooled decorated circular motif replicating the features of the shell's primer.


Date: 1894

Condition


These antique peppers are an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional presentation condition.

Full hallmarks to the surface of each piece have not been deeply struck due to the rounded surface; these marks have wear in keeping with age, but remain legible.

The full hallmarks to the underside of each piece are all clear in keeping with age; the top portions of the maker's marks are worn.


Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of these pieces of antique silverware.
