- Quantity Available: 1
Two little pepper pots - very similar in design, but bearing different hallmarks. One is very fractionally shorter than the other, and the design while almost identical, is slightly smaller in detail. One pot is hallmarked for Birmingham 1892, and the other for Chester 1892. One has its marks underneath, the other has them on the neck. Both tops are also hallmarked, on their inside rim. Pots are very ornate, with scrolling embossed design of flowers and acanthus foliage. Central cartouches are unengraved. One pot measures 7.7cm high, the other 7.5cm high (a fraction over 3 inches and 2.15/16 inches high). The widest point is 3.75cm diameter (1.1/2 inches). The top on the Birmingham one is loose, but this is easily fixed by a silversmith, or you can swap the tops over, and then they fit well. Slight dent up underneath the base of this one. The Chester pot has some tiny dents in the neck, nothing serious or ugly though. Otherwise, both are in very good condition. Makers mark for the Birmingham pot is HE and RS.. The maker on the Chester pot is rubbed, but looks like BR... (maybe S).
