Silver Viking Salt Boats, William J Holmes, Birmingham 1939

Tags:

Pair of cased hallmarked sterling silver salts in the shape of Viking long boats, hallmarked from Birmingham in 1939, retailed by W Hourston of Kirkwall.

Liners have some chips to the end edges and are quite difficult to remove from the vessels(tight)….There is extensive blackening to the insides of the salts and small traces outside so a more in-depth polish is going to be required., One spoon is original the other is just one we have included so there are 2 spoons with the set.

They each measure 84mm in length.

Box is in excellent order.
