The Pepper Caster stands on a square pedestal foot with incuse corners and a reeded edge. The foot rises to a vase shaped body, also with incuse sides, and a reeded rim. The lower section of the body is decorated with lobed panels and is engraved with a set of contemporary script initials. The "pull off" baluster cover terminates in an urn finial and is pierced with roundels and engraved with trellis work. Classical inspired Pepper Casters are extremely rare and this piece has most definately been influenced in its design by Robert Adam's work. The Caster is in excellent condition and is fully marked in the base and on the cover. This is the first time we have seen this design and also the first piece we have offered by this rare partnership.
