The condition is very good, the insides have been cleaned and serviced and the mechanisms work well. Some surface marks to the silver and surface dents around the base from age and use. No splits, holes or repairs.
The salt is identified by has a plastic movement to avoid corrosion, the pepper is steel. They stand 4 inches 10 cm tall and are 1 3/4 inches 4.5 cm wide at the base. They are in a tissue lined gift box. A lovely top quality pair to grace any table. Low price reflects the dinks to the base.
