Art Nouveau, Antique Set of 6 sterling silver overlaid cut glass open salts in their original, fitted box. Made late 19th – early 20th century by the Alvin Corporation, USA. Each salt is a little over 1 1/2 inches diameter and slightly under 1/2 inch in height. The salts have a nicely cut floral looking sun burst that covers almost the entire bottom surface. The rims are entirely covered in silver and the sides have a scrolling design in silver overlay, in the Art Nouveau style. Each salt is hallmarked – some of the marks a little worn. Engraved marks 925 over 1000 FINE and 3 circles, the central one with a capital A in it, the two on either side are the hallmarks for the Alvin Corporation, Providence, Rohode Island, followed by number eg 3C or 96. The condition of all of the salts is very good, with no chips/cracks/restoration. The box is 7 1/4 – 7 1/2 inches square. The fitted bottom is made of deep forest green velvet. The rest is embroidered silk in the same colour. Besides a little wear to the silk on the corners, the box is in good condition. The bright gold coloured clasp is very pretty, but is missing the little latch that connects top to bottom (see’photos). INTERNATIONAL BUYERS PLEASE NOTE. See our policies below.
