Elegant antique French sterling silver double open salt or sweet meat caddy with acanthus accented center handle and thick blown & intaglio engraved glass! The satin-frosted & intaglio etched or engraved double cup of this one looks so much like fine Lalique glass items, doesn't it, but we haven't a signature we can rely upon to point to it being that. The silver is marked with a French Minerve #1, which guarantees we have fine .950/1000 (95% pure) French silver here, though, and that certainly speaks to the quality. The silversmith mark is, unfortunately, mostly illegible so I've not been able to find reference for it. Use it for sweet meats at the table or side table, or as a large double open salt, it'll elevate the elegance of your table.
Very good condition. Possibly a tiny nip or two to the glass but no larger chips, no cracks, damage or repairs to note. Just gorgeous! See pictures for measurements.
