Lovely pair of silver caudron salts made in London in 1890 by Hukin and Heath. They are made of a good gauge silver. They are of a wrythen fluted design and sit on ball feet.
In very good condition with crisp clear hallmarks. They are 5 cms across and 3 cms high and have a combined weight of 66 grams.
Hukin and Heath were established in 1855 initially in Birmingham and registered their mark In London in 1879. They were famously associated with Dr Christopher Dresser in the 1870s and 1880s whose modern designs were and still are highly collected. His silver and plated designs continued to be made into the 1900s.
When Hukin retired in 1881, Heath formed a partnership with John Hartshorne Middleton but still using the Hukin and Heath name. In 1904 the business becomes a limited company.
