Presented for sale is a pair of exquisitely figural cupid & Shell salt cellars and a pair of salt spoons. Each salt cellar stands 2 1/2 inches tall on 4 cute little dolphin feet. The salt cellar dimensions are 2 5/8 inches long and 2 inches wide. The colonial style salt spoons are 4 1/8 inches long. The salt spoons are sterling and marked as such, and the salt cellars are. 800 Continental silver from Germany and I believe that they were created by Friedrich Reusswig of the Hanau area sometime in the last quarter of the 1800s. Together, all 4 pieces weigh in at 140 grams. Time to make them your own. When damage (no matter how minute) I try to make sure that it is clearly depicted in the photos. Also, while I thoroughly wash and hand-polish every piece of sterling that I sell, I do not have the time or the inclination to get out a toothbrush and clean every little nook and cranny of the more intricate designs unless build-up or tarnish is excessive.
