A Pair of Silver Salt Bowls Hallmarked Birmingham 1931
We have 1 in stock.
A pair of silver salt bowls hallmarked Birmingham 1931 by maker Daniel & Arter.
The date of 1931 places them in the middle of the Art Deco period with the geometric style of pattern around the rims been so typical of this period.
The bowls are raised on four feet and are made from a good gauge of silver giving them a solid and tactile feel.
Condition:- These salt bowls are in very good condition with no dents, creases, large surface scratches etc. with just some internal surface marks as is normal due to the effect of salt. The glass inserts are also in very good general condition with only one having some 'nibbles' around the rim. Please refer to the photographs for further detail.
The hallmarks are clear and there are no initials, monogram or other engraving present.
These silver salt bowls are complete bowls i.e. not just bottomless holders for glass inserts. This means the bowls could be used for other purposes to complement an art deco table setting e.g. for individually wrapped mints, sauces, sugar sachets, condiments etc. or perhaps as an attractive base for decorations.
They could of course just be used for display, perhaps to add to an existing collection.
