A small collection of Old Vienna silver sugar casters, and how they changed during the 19th century. The first two are late 18th and early 19th century casters and have a plain round baluster body and modest stylized floral bands. The lids in both are hand pierced with a cast knurl finial in one. Mid 19th century (the third – year 1858) has clear neo-baroque influence popular at the time. From the same period are very characteristic ``Vienna rose silver`` casters (Wiener Rosensilber) with hand embossed roses. Average weight (except for the small one is 7 oz) and 6 inches tall. The last was made after 1867, the quality decreased; 4 oz and simply pierced lid. All marked with Vienna hallmark (letter A), year and ``13`` loth purity (13 loth = 812/1000 ).The last one is marked with Diana`s head.
