this pair of salt cellars was made in Genoa (Kingdom of Sardinia) in the first half of the 19th century. They have 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 unidentified silversmith's mark BN
Bibliography: a largely similar couple of salt cellars (maker BN) is illustrated on page 223 of Gianna Rocattagliata's book 'Argenti Genovesi'
The salts have a diameter of 2 3/4 in. (cm. 7) on the bowl, is 4 in. (cm. 10) high and was bought from an US dealer through the Internet.
