Price as a pair.
Listed in the Tompkins "Handbook of Gorham Open Salt Dishes" with a date of 1885, model number "2155" is a flat bottomed, relatively large item.
Each of these examples measures 2 3/8" across, stands 7/8" high, and weighs approximately 1.0 T. oz. They have scrolled edges, rippled ("pie crust") rims, and gold washed interiors, although that is largely polished away in one of these.
There are no monograms, inscriptions, or removals.
In addition to the word "Sterling" and the model number "2155," they are both stamped with a lion, anchor, and G. They are in excellent condition, noting the polishing wear on the interior of one of them.
