Antique Silver Salts With Two Antique Silver Victorian Matched Spoons. The two large circular salts have an embossed flower decoration to the sides. They have a gadrooned pattern to the fluted rims and they stand on 3 paw shell capped feet. They do have a fancy cartouche which have been engraved with very fancy lettering, but these are quite worn and I am afraid that I cannot make them out, or indeed how many there are, although I think there are four.
The two salts have a pretty engraved scroll and leaf pattern to the top parts of the handles and each having a black cartouche and they have the Old English pattern to the back of the handles. They have a circular cartouche at the top of the handles which are still blank. Both the salts and the spoons are made from a good guage of silver and all have clear hallmarks

Antique and vintage silver by its very nature has been previously used. Silver is a comparatively soft metal and a combination of many years use invariably leaves its mark. I do endeavour to describe all items accurately but do not expect any antique to be in "as new condition".
