Description


This exceptional antique Victorian cast sterling silver pepperette has been realistically modelled in the form of a hare sitting upright.


This impressive pepperette is embellished with chased decoration reproducing the details of the hare’s fur and lean anatomical features.


The pepperette retains the original fully hallmarked push fit cover/head which features pierced 'pepper' holes to the forehead.


This impressive sterling silver piece was crafted by the silversmiths Cornelius Desormeaux Saunders & James Francis Hollings (Frank) Shepherd.


Such original period pieces are becoming increasingly difficult to locate.


Date: 1890

Condition


This antique silver novelty pepperette / pepper shaker is an excellent gauge of silver, excellent quality and in excellent condition.

Full hallmarks struck to the surface of the body and part hallmarks to the underside in addition to the rim of the cover/head are all very clear.


Reflections in photography may detract from the true representation of this piece of Victorian silverware.
