An adorable pair of silver chick salts, made in Spain in the 1950's, hallmarked


Ask a question

An aboslutely gorgeous and unusual pair of salts in the form of two chicks, with lovely expressive moment in the design, and wonderful detail to feathers and feet. Cellar is filled through a screw dispenser and salt then poured out through the beak. These were made in Spain in around the 1950's and have been hallmarked on the rear screws with a star, indicating Spanish made and .915 purity.

Silver weight: 82 grams or 2 7/8 ounces

Measurements: 1.5 inches tall and just under 2 inches long, tail to beak.

Condition: Excellent vintage condition. The birds have a lovely artisanal feeling. One of the screws does not sit exactly flush with the body but I don't consider this a flaw - more an indication of the handmade nature.

A delightful pair that the Wandering Poetess has so enjoyed having in her home. They look lovely hopping around on a pile of books, and, of course would enliven any Easter table.
