silver salt cellar - Kingdom of Sardinia
                                                      (Genoa-Italy)


this salt cellar was made in Genoa (Kingdom of Sardinia) in the first half of the 19th century. It has a crystal bowl fitting into a silver base on four floral legs.
The salt cellar has the 800/1000 hallmark for large works (Cross of SS. Maurizio e Lazzaro) and the silversmith hallmark (S with another pair of not readable letters)
The salt has a diameter of 2 3/4 in. (cm. 7) on the bowl, is 3 3/4 in. (cm. 8,5) high and was bought from an Italian dealer in an Antique Market.
