Object Condition

These antique trencher salts are a very good gauge of silver, very good quality and excellent condition, in keeping with their age and type.

There are some natural fire marks to the surface of each salt; this does not detract from the aesthetic appearance of the items.

Full hallmarks struck to the underside of each salt are very clear, in keeping with age.

Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of these pieces of Georgian silverware.
