VERY LARGE Solid Silver PEPPER POT 1984 Hallmarked Sterling UNUSUAL RARE NR
Gorgeous - Stunning Baluster Design - 2 1/2 troy oz.
This is a lovely vintage solid sterling silver LARGE pepper pot or pepperette with a push on lid which was made in London, England in 1978 by the illustrious Victorian silversmiths, James Wakely and Frank Clarke Wheeler of Wakely & Wheeler (formerly Henry John Lias & Son) at their Fleet Street workshops. It is in a circular baluster shape with a pierced domed lid, a spire finial and is raised on three elegant feet. It measures 1 5/8" in diameter and stands 4" high. It is very substantial - it weighs77.5 grams-virtually2 1/2troy oz. It is not engraved.
The top still fits tightly. It hasa few dings and dents but NO splits - just the usual light surface scratching but NO distortion - a very nice sterling silver collectors piece - SUPER - but it does need a better clean than I have had time to give it. It is hallmarked with W&W, lion passant (sterling silver assay mark), leopard head, K showing that it was hallmarked in London in 1984. I have shown the hallmark so that you can make up your own mind. A RARE and high quality piece - a very substantial pepper pot!!
