Georgian, George III, set of four silver salts. Of oval form and raised on four shell capped hoof feet. Profusely decorated with scrolls and foliage. The rims are crimped. The salt shovels are probably silver and have some feint makers marks on two of them.
In excellent order with light surface wear and a tiny split in the rim of one.
Hallmarked to the underside of each salt for London 1771 by William Cattell. The hallmarks are quite rubbed and I have photographed each set to illustrate.
Approximate silver weight of the four salts (shovels not included) is 331 grams or 10.6 troy ounces.
Approximate dimensions of one salt are 8 cm length, 7 cm width and 5 cm height.
Two shovels are 9 cm length and two are 8 cm length.
