Silver Condiment Set, Salts and Peppers, Chester.
An antique pair of sterling silver open salts with blue glass liners, salt spoons, and a pair of sterling silver pepperettes, also with blue glass liners. Although strictly speaking these are not a matching set, both the pairs have openwork sides, and using them together means you have two open salts and two upright peppers, instead of using one of the open salts for pepper, and one for salt. All items in very good overall antique condition - a small indentation in one of the pepperette lids (this could be pushed out) and a bit of a crooked stem to the spoons. Silver hallmark for the salts reads Chester 1906. Maker’s mark is for the Haseler Brothers, Edward John Haseler and Noble Haseler. (Av little later on, the firm acted as a partner to Liberty & Co of London to produce the well-known Cymric range of silverware).
The pair of pepperettes have the same hallmarks. The little spoons are hallmarked for Birmingham, 1886 - makers are Vale Bros & Sermon. Hallmark has the Queen’s head (Queen Victoria).
Measurements: Salts are 4.2 cm high, by 6.4 cm long and 3.9 cm wide. Spoons are 6 cm long. Pepperettes are 6.5 cm high and 3.4 cm diameter at their widest point.
