Pair of early Georgian plain salts

Stock Number: 4398

This is what we believe to be a pair of late Georgian hand-blown table salts dating from the end of the 18th century, c1790.   
The salts are in excellent condition for their age.  This means, of course, that they show the age related wear and tear commensurate with some 200 years of use.  
The salts are disk-shaped and are plain, with no decoration.  The bases are also plain, and sport rough pontil marks.  The salts measure 8.5 cm (3.4 inches) in diameter at their widest point and are 4.3 cm (1.7 inches) in height.  There are no chips, cracks, significant scratches or any evidence of restoration. There is a collector's sticker to the base of one of the feet.
