The salts are of circular bowl form and rest on three hoofed feet.They are plain silver with rope twist style decoration to the rims. The salts have blue glass liners. The liners are not of the same style suggesting one is a replacement (one fits very well, the other not so). The bowls are hallmarked to the undersides for London, 1740. The makers stamps are for Edward Wood. The salts each come with circular bowl serving spoons.
