$34.00 Price for the pair.

With dates largely corresponding to the second quarter of the 19th century, the Philadelphia firm of Robert and William Wilson was a significant manufacturer, producing a wide array of silver flat and hollow ware.

While modest and unpresuming in terms of function, size, and design, this pair of matching, 3 3/4" long, .5 T. oz. combined, master salt spoons nonetheless reflect the full quality of craft for which the firm was known.

They have broad, upturned, "Tipt" ends, beveled edge handles, and high pointed shoulders off the oval bowls with exposed drops on the backsides.

Each one is engraved "LB" in fancy, feathered script lettering on the fronts.

They remain in outstanding condition, showing no polishing wear, having well-formed bowls free of dents, nicks, or burrs, and possessing an overall bright, even finish.

Marks are "R. & W. Wilson Philada."

Many other coin and sterling silver master salt spoons available, both singles and pairs. Please inquire.
