So these were made in England for the German market. As I state in my description. For your consideration, is not one, but a rare set of matching early 19th century English sterling silver muffineer/sugar shaker made for the German market.
It has the Georgian head so it was made before 1830s. When they started using Queen Victoria's head. They are in excellent condition and they do have a scripted monogrammed. I make it out to be R F. As you can see by the photographs it is heavily embossed with flowers and the top part, appears to be a vine with some sort of fruit on it.
These are very heavy sterling silver and weigh approximately 27 ounces, for the pair. They are approximately a little under nine and half inches tall, by almost 4 inches wide at its widest.
Once again I have seen many singular muffineers but never a matched pair. These would look great on the table for any holiday occasion. They both are marked one having four markings, the other one only two.
There is a small Mark on each lid. I believe it's a ramped lion, but they are too small to quite make out. They are both in excellent condition, with normal and expected wear.
I was not able to find any other matched pair. Please read all of the information down below so that you understand exactly how we do business.
