1980s Sterling Silver and Enamel Salt and Pepper Set

About

An exceptional, fine and impressive, pair of vintage English cast sterling silver and enamel salt & pepper set, in the form of a soft boiled egg in an egg holder - boxed; an addition to our silver cruets/condiments collection These exceptional vintage Elizabeth II sterling silver condiment set consists of a salt shaker, a pepper shaker and two spoons. The pieces of this silver and enamel salt and pepper set have been realistically modelled in the form of soft boiled eggs in egg cups. Each condiment shaker is ornamented with an enamel eggshell design with the top portion 'cracked' away to reveal the pierced salt and pepper holes; the upper portion of the pepper retains the original gilding. The enamel and silver egg covers detach from a bayonet style fitment to a brown enamel decorated egg cup; once the cover is removed it can be determined the pieces were commissioned to be used as functional egg cups. The spoons have circular rounded bowls to plain waisted stems and terminate with cast finials encircled with scalloped borders and circular motifs, accented with initial 'M' to one and 'N' to the other. These vintage silver and enamel salt and pepper set are fitted to the original hinged crimson leatherette presentation box, with a velvet and satin lined interior and secures with two hinged catches. The interior of the box bears the retailer's mark 'arenski'. These exceptional examples of vintage silverware were made by the renowned artistic and imaginative silversmith Anthony Elson in 1981. Dimensions Condiment shaker Diameter 4.7cm/1.9" Height 10.9cm/4.3" Spoon Length 15.5cm/6.1" Width 3.4cm/1.3" Total weight 11.5 troy ounces/357g Maker: Anthony Elson Date: 1981 Origin: London, England Video: A video of this fine piece is available upon request Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this example of vintage silverware.
