Absolutely gorgeous antique French Belle Epoque era sterling silver 4pc open salt set with matching spoons, all with ornate Louis XVI or rococo styling, original shaped & cut clear glass inserts and all nestled in the original fitted storage and/or presentation box! Aren’t these wonderful! A set of four, perfect to be spaced over your opulently appointed dining table or as personal salts at each sitter’s plate side. Louis XVI or rococo styling with scrolled tendrils & foliate accenting and all four have the original shaped and wheel cut clear glass inserts. All four bear the French Minerve or Minerva hallmark, the tiny number “1” within those marks means they’re in. 950 silver 95% pure and higher than the. 925 standard for “sterling” silver. The spoons also with the Minerve mark but with a number “2” for at least. 800 (80% pure) silver content, common in these smaller pieces for the added strength the slightly lowered silver content provides. A lovely set, don’t miss them! Some tarnish visible in the recesses of the ornate decoration but no dents, damage or repairs to note. Possibly a tiny nip or two to the glass inserts, one with a visible chip on the curved upper edge but no cracks or other damage. The spoons do show some tarnish to the bowls and remnants of a vermeil finish but mostly silver now and I’ll see about polishing them up better before sending out. One spoon has a missing’lobe’ to the scalloped bowl. The box is in fine shape, age considered. See pictures for weight and measurements. We’re easy to deal with. You are very important!
