Rare 18th century English pewter capstan salt, which is well made, and although unmarked is almost certainly English. This is an outstanding example of a capstan salt probably from the middle of the 18th century. One of the best-looking salts we have seen, and very finely made. Detailing includes incised lines to the upper base, and edge of mouth, with fine turning lines under the base. In excellent condition, with lustrous original surface patina to outer surface, and darker oxide in the shallow bowl. 2⅛” high, with 2¼” mouth, and 2⅞” base diameters. 80g weight. This is the one to the right of the group photo of three salts, of which the other two are also for sale. REF: P1014
