An exceptional, fine and impressive, antique Edwardian English cast sterling silver pepper shakers modelled in the form of budgerigars; an addition to our collectable silver collection

SKU C8203

These exceptional antique cast sterling silver peppers are realistically modelled in the form of budgerigars*.


These Edwardian silver pepperettes are embellished with details reproducing the birds' feathers and anatomical features.


The head of each silver bird is embellished with pierced 'pepper' holes, in addition to the original bead eyes.


The underside of each budgie features a hinged cover/stopper.


The chest and underside of one bird retains the original gilding.


These exceptional peppers will have been crafted in the same year but due to the hallmarking system one is struck with the date letter 'i' and the other bears 'k'.


These exceptional sterling silver bird pepper shakers are the finest of their type you could hope to acquire.


* A budgerigar (often shortened to budgie) is also known in the United States as a parakeet. These small birds are often pets and the first budgerigar was first recorded in history by the renowned zoologist, George Shaw.
