These rare and exceptional silver master salts were crafted by renowned silversmith Hester Bateman. With their pierced and scalloped bodies, ball-and-claw feet, original cobalt glass liners and delicate spoons, these beautiful salts perfectly exemplify the remarkable quality and delicate design of Bateman's work.

An innovation of the early 19th century, the master salt was the main container of salt on a finely laid table. Accompanied by a miniature spoon, it was passed by the host to each guest during a meal.
