Measuring 2 1/4" long, 1 5/8" wide, and standing 1 1/2" high, this master salt is comprised of a solid silver, footed, holder and a deep blue, cobalt glass liner.

It is stamped with a French "Minerva Head" 800 silver touchmark (lower left in above image), and a maker's emblem for Paris maker Ernest Eschwége (upper right in above image), working until 1921.

The silver has lattice work sides with four stylized shell (coquille) legs. The silver alone weighs .6 T. oz.

In excellent condition, the holder is without bends or breaks and has an even finish. The glass is intact and free of cracks or chips.
