Old English Hallmarked 1922 Sterling Silver Mounted Oyster Shell Salt Cellar:
This is a beautiful and unusual old salt cellar with a real oyster shell on a fully assayed sterling silver sand.
It measures approx. 1 1/2" tall, the base has a diameter at the bottom of just over 1 1/2" and the shell measures 3 5/8" by 1 3/4".
It's has a full set of hallmarks for Chester, England in 1922 and makers initials of "W.V&S" for William Vale & Sons of Unett Street in Birmingham.
The bottom of the base appears to have a leather cover and the remains of a sticker.
This absolutely gorgeous salt is in excellent condition especially considering it was made 91 years ago.
