Please note that I have added the spoon to the set but this is silver plated. Each piece is hallmarked for Birmingham 1914 with the makers mark of Barker Brothers. Unfortunately, the marks are generally rubbed.This set is in good, usable condition but, after 103 years, there are a few things to bring to your attention. The lid of the mustard pot closes flush but, although the hinge is in good order, there is quite a wobble to the lid which is caused by the hinge being quite small and loosening over the years. To the body, there is an extremely light bruise to one side and two pinhead dints.
To the other side, there are two light bruises to the middle and two pinhead dints and, to the front, there is a kink to the nose on the bottom edge. The liner is in good order with only a small chip to the inner edge as shown in the photos.
The lids of the shakers fit nice and securely and theres no damage to them. One shaker has two small 5mm bruises to one side. The other shaker has a 5mm bruise to one side and a similar one to the other with two extremely light small bruises underneath. These bruises are slight but noticeable.
Please be aware that there will be tiny surface abrasions caused though use over the years. Ive tried to show all aspects in the photos and the flaws are reflected in the asking price for the set.

Prices are calculated to include the weight of packaging as well as the weight of the item. To ensure items are safe in transit, I package them very well and, unfortunately, this does increase mailing costs somewhat. All packages must be signed for upon receipt. Should you wish to return an item, please contact me as soon as possible after receiving it. I source and re-home high quality antique and vintage silver at wholesale prices.
On the odd occasion, I come across something that might have had a bit of a rough life but deserves a second chance rather than being consigned to the melting pot. In all cases, because buyers are purchasing from a distance, I always provide in-depth condition reports and multiple high-magnification images in my listings to give you as much information as possible.
