An attractive pair of sterling silver condiments modelled as Humpty Dumpty, the egg shaped character from the children’s nursery tale. Weight of silver 31 grams, 1 troy ounce. Height 4.5cm. London 1924. Maker Saunders & Shepherd.
These interesting silver condiments are in very good condition with no damage or restoration. The mustard has the original glass liner and both pots have original gilt interiors. Both are stamped on the top and base with matching English silver hallmarks.
The origins of Humpty Dumpty are unknown but this name was in use as far back as the 15th century. The nursery rhyme was first printed in 1810 and the egg shaped character became famous through the book “Alice Through the Looking Glass” by Lewis Carroll.
