condition
This antique pepper is an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional condition. Full hallmarks struck to the underside of the base are very clear. The hallmark to the cover has not been struck precisely and is illegible, as often the case with pierced examples. Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this example of Georgian silverware.
