The marks are rubbed, but there is a discernible maker’s mark on each piece, and a Hibernia mark is also evident on each piece. The Irish crowned harp is only really visible on one of the two pieces, and there are no date letters visible. The maker’s mark seems to be the earlier of at least two known to have been used by Bond, and these pieces probably date to the 1760s or 1770s. There is no monogram or armorial, or sign of erasure. Condition overall is very good, with one or two small, shallow dimples but no significant dents and no pushes to the legs (the salts sit flat and without any wobble on a flat surface). There appear to be no splits or repairs. All in all a desirable example of 18th Century Irish silver hollowware!
