This fine antique Victorian sterling silver pepper has a plain ovoid shaped form.
The body of the silver novelty pepper is embellished with impressive chased decoration depicting a cracked egg shell with a boy’s face and hands to the anterior surface and his feet and buttocks to the reverse.
The body has pierced 'pepper' holes in a hexagram formation to the upper portion.
This pepper retains the original fully hallmarked screw fit weighted base; which when unscrewed provides access to permit the pot to be filled.
This novelty pepper is a fine example of its type.
