Luxury Design, Past & Present
A very elegant pair of sterling salt cellars, date marked 1769, made by London father and son silversmith team David Hennell I (1712- 1785) and Robert Hennell I (1741-1811). Lovely openwork Rococo scrolls form the oval body of each salt cellar which rests on ball and claw feet. The pair retain their original cobalt glass liners, contoured on the top with scalloped cut edges, matching the top edge of the silver. Accompanied by a pair of later American sterling salt spoons.
