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.
