This is a rare PAIR of TWO GEORGIAN solid sterling silver salts that was made in London, England in 1759, probably by a member of the family of the famous Georgian silversmith, Edward Wood at hisGreat Carter Lane workshops - Edward Wood was a specialist saltmaker and master of the illustrious David Hennell.These salts are round in shape, have rolled edges, plain sidesand are raised on three elegant feet. This pair are engraved to the front with initials. Each salt measures 2 1/2" in diameter and stands 1 1/2" high. Each salt weighs52.8 grams -a total ofalmost 31/2troy oz.

The salts are in very good condition with less than the usual surface scratching,much less than the usualcollection of dings but NO dents - almost NO compression and distortion to the feet - SUPERB. Each salt is hallmarked with lion passant (sterling silver assay mark), crowned leopard headandD (all rather rubbed as you can see from the last picture)showing that each was hallmarked in London in 1759. I have shown the hallmarks so that you can make up your own mind. A really super and rare PAIR of George II salts in very good condition afteralmost 245years at a very low start and !!!
