The Salt Cellars stand on an oval stepped pedestal foot which is decorated with beading. The main body also has a beaded rim and very unusual Onslow scroll ends. The sides are pierced and engraved with two bands of vitruvian scrolls as well as Neo-Classical urns in roundels. The main body is also engraved with herring bone garlands, as well as a small set of contemporary script initials, contained within a prick dot circular cartouche. The Salts are in excellent condition, have blue glass liners, and are very well marked in the foot. This is a most unusual style, which does not appear often on the market.

Length: 4.6 inches, 11.5cm.
Width: 2.6 inches, 6.5cm.
Height: 2.5 inches 6.25cm.
