A fine pair of antique sterling silver salt dishes with figural dolphin supports and naturalistic bases. Heavy cast silver. The detailed workmanship on these is quite exceptional and they sit very well in the hand. Each is hand engraved to the front with the crest of a lion over a crown. Traces of the original all over gilding. Weight 491 grams, 15.7 troy ounces. Height 8 cms. Top 12 x 9 cms. Base 7 x 6.5 cms. Unmarked silver. Circa 1750.
These charming antique silver standing salts are in very good condition with no damage or restoration. The crest is still crisp. The execution is superb. Originally gilded all over, much of this is worn.

Both salts are completely unmarked. They are obviously antique and in our opinion, judging from the style of the crests and overall appearance, date to the mid 18th century. Circa 1750.

Please note that this item is not new and will show moderate signs of wear commensurate with age. Reflections in the photograph may detract from the true representation of this item
