A pair of superb quality silver salts by the sought after Huguenot silversmith Paul de Lamerie. Each with a beaded rim and on four scroll feet with trefid terminals. Heavy gauge metal and lovely chunky feel. The hand chased borders of decoration to the body and top of the foot are worn. Weight 338 grams, 10.8 troy ounces. Height 5 cms. Diameter 7 cms. London 1731/1732. Maker Paul de Lamerie.
These rare silver salts are in very good condition with no restoration. Good patina. There is wear to the hand chased decoration – see photos. Salt 2 has dent marks inside where the feet are pushed through a little. The silver marks are still very clear. Salt 1 is dated 1732, sterling silver standard, with makers mark LA for Paul de Lamerie, weight 169 grams. Salt 2 is dated 1731, Britannia standard silver, with makers mark PL for Paul de Lamerie, weight 169 grams. It is curious that these two fully matching salts are differently marked, possibly they originally came from two identical looking pairs.

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.
