Description


These exceptional antique George IV sterling silver salts have a circular rounded cauldron shaped form.


The plain rounded body of each salt is embellished with a contemporary bright cut engraved crest of a dove perched on a cap.


The cast and applied flared upper rim of each piece is encompassed leaf textures to the undulating border.


Each piece is supported with a circular collet rim to four Regency style bracket feet, incorporating scrolling leaf and paw designs.


The interior and rim of each salt retains the original gilding.


This exceptional set of silver salts is accompanied by the original hallmarked sterling silver fiddle pattern salt spoons, each ornamented with the aforementioned crest.


The initials within the maker's mark, in addition to the standardisation of the surround could pertain to a multitude of antique silversmiths; these silversmiths include John Brough, John Booth, Joseph Biggs and John Baddeley.
