Pair of Sevres double salts with gilt decoration, C. 1770
Pair of Sevres double salts, the wells of club shape within an hour glass form, simply decorated with gilt line edges and a dentil rim.
Incised modellers marks and suspension holes beneath,
also later added crossed L’s in blue with crown,
13 x 7 cm
These are a rare pair of 18th century white pieces that were never decorated, probably discarded due to the speckles in the glaze, and sold off in the early 19th century when the marks were added to define them as ‘Sevres’. They also added the crown to show hard-paste, although they are actually soft-paste! Ex- Rosenberg Collection #813
