Pair of American coin silver open salts by Robert and William Wilson, working in Philadelphia, PA. Circa 1825. Each salt is decorated with a gadrooned rim and is supported by three hoof feet. Hammered interiors; each engraved with original owner's initials 'JCS' and stamped on the underside with the maker's mark R&W WILSON in a rectangle. R&W Wilson silversmiths specialized in the manufacture of quality silver items that continued the designs of earlier forms, such as these salts which are in a 1760's style. Condition: no repairs, but with a moderate dent to the side of one salt and some minor bruising; hallmarks worn but legible. Size: 2.75 inches diameter x 1.25 inches high.
