2 Pairs Of Empire Sterling Silver Salt & Pepper Shakers For Sale
2 Pairs of Empire Sterling Silver Salt & Pepper Shakers
This is a great estate sale find. Two identical pairs of Empire sterling silver salt & pepper shakers with screw on tops and weighted bases. 2 salts & 2 peppers, all marked on the bottom, Empire Sterling Weighted 35. They are 5 ¼” high to the top finial with 1 ¾” bases and 1 5/8” shoulder width. Only the bases are weighted. The rest of the shaker is all heavy gauge sterling with no glass inserts. Each shaker, including the top and base, has a weight of 1.85 troy ounces or 57.7 grams. With a total weight of 7.4 troy ounces.
The condition of the shakers is very good. All the surfaces are gleaming mirror finish sterling with some wear. They are as I found them, I didn’t polish them. There are however some dings and dents. I will describe each shaker. Although I use a magnifier to do a detailed description of the defects, this is a wonderful set and to the naked eye the defects aren’t as noticeable.
Salt #1. The top is nice but has one tiny dent on the top finial. Only some corrosion spots on the inside. The body is very nice, with some scattered tiny tarnish spots which weren’t removed by whoever polished them. They might be deeper surface spots that would require more serious polishing. And a few scattered light scratches. I see two tiny dings on the vertical edges. And some tiny scratches and tiny dings on the base. And a very minor edge bump on the base edge.
Pepper #1. The top is nice, no dents. The body is very nice, with a few scattered tiny tarnish spots which weren’t removed by whoever polished them. They might be deeper surface spots that would require more serious polishing. And some scattered surface scratches. And one dent on a vertical edge. The base is very nice with only two tiny dings.
Salt #2. the top is nice, no dings or dents. The body has a few barely noticeable light dings and some scattered scratches. And a few tiny spots, as previously mentioned. The base is nice, with only one edge ding.
Pepper #2. the top is nice, with one ding on the finial. The body has one ding on a vertical edge near the top. And one shallow dnet on a flat surface. The base is nice, no dings or dents.
