A lovely pair of antique Imperial Russian silver and polychrome cloisonné enamel salts and spoons by Gustav Klingert 1896. The surfaces of the salts and the back of the bowls of the spoon are decorated with fine and beautifully executed cloisonné scrolling foliate designs in pale blue, darker blue red and white vitreous enamel. The interior of the bowls still has gilding as do the bowls of the spoons the gilded appears to have worn from the outsides of the salts. The hallmarks are on the base of the salts with some rubbing to the makers name. We cannot find any marks on the matching salt spoons.
