Art Nouveau Silver Salt & Pepper
Delightful little pair of Art Nouveau silver salt and pepper pots made by the Sheffield silversmiths Lee & Wigfull, hallmarked for the year 1906.
A lovely flowing design, narrowing as they rise from a flat base before widening again towards the rim. Each has a pair of applied handles shaped in typical Art Nouveau fashion, sweeping upwards and part way round the circumference, ending in little flower bud shapes where they are attached.
The removeable lids both have the same number of holes but the one that has obviously been used for pepper is decorated with a little finial at the very top.
Showing the maker’s mark H.W for Henry Wigfull, hallmarked on the underside of each and also on the inside rims of the lids.
The pepper pot is approximately 7.5 cm high and the salt 6.5 cm.
