Exquisite & rare antique French Napoleon III era sterling silver open salt or sweet meats set, four matching & original pieces with highly ornate Louis XVI style sterling bases & cut glass or crystal inserts! The set consists of FOUR open salt or sweet meats, sterling bases with octagonal thick wheel cut glass inserts.
All pieces bear the post-1838 French Minerve or Minerva hallmark, the number "1" within those marks means that they're all in. 950 silver 95% pure and higher than the. 925 standard for "sterling" silver.
A magnificent & rare ensemble, don't miss them! Very good to excellent condition. Some tarnish in the deep recesses of those ornate repousse base stands. Possibly a tiny nip or two to the glass inserts but none that I saw while photographing, no larger chips or cracks to note.
The inserts rest down into the sterling bases and are not currently permanently mounted though you could if you wished to (epoxy or superglue would be easy). I'm leaving them as they are since it's easier to clean them separated. See pictures for all weights and measurements.We're easy to deal with. Our fine inventory is very important.
