Two sterling silver pots with sprung lids. Hallmarks on the larger pot are for Birmingham 1905, maker is H.W. Ld (for Henry Williamson Ltd)and on the smaller pot Birmingham 1907, maker D & F (Deakin & Francis). Both have a monogram of intertwined initials on the lid. The smaller pot is either B.A.C. or possibly A.B.C. The larger pot is C.L.C. or something similar - I find it very hard to decipher these entwined letters. C seems to be the surname here though. One possibly for powder, the other for some other unguent. They could be husband and wife - or brothers, since these could also be for a mans pomade. Inside, they have both been gilded, although this is largely worn on the smaller pot. Largest measures 36 mm high and 88 mm diameter (about 1.1/2 inches by 3.1/2 inches). The smaller measures 29 mm high by 83 mm diameter (1.1/8 inches by 3.1/4 inches). Both in excellent condition, although you certainly need fingernails to open them. Weights are 95.93 grams for the larger pot, and 86.84 grams for the smaller pot.
