Unusual Salt - London: William Kersill - 1 1/2 troy oz.
This is a rare GEORGIAN solid sterling silver salt which was made in London, England in 1762, by the illustrious Georgian silversmith, William Kersill at his Gutter Lane workshops. This lovely salt is round in shape, has arolledrim with plain sides and is raised onthree elegant feet.It isNOT engraved. This salt measures 2 3/8" in diameter and stands almost 1 3/8" high. This salt weighs44.5 grams -almost 1 1/2troy oz. It is NOT engraved.
The salt is in very good condition with a little less than the usual surface scratching, the usual collection of minordings but NO dents and less than the usual compression to the feet - SUPERB. This salt is hallmarked with WK, lion passant (sterling silver assay mark), crowned leopard head,G showing that it was hallmarked in London in 1762.
