This is a charming little salt and condiment (?) set that matches the teapot in my other posting. It has two chambers. One is a salt shaker that comes out with the base - the base has a hole for a cork to fill with salt. The other has a lid with a notch for a spoon, and the lid comes off to reveal another little chamber like the bottom of the salt - only it is solid - it also comes out of the holder (to be cleaned I suppose). The two chambers are shaped like strawberries and the lid holders and the main holder are gilt - both show wear to the gilding. There is another leaf between the two chambers on each side but not sure if this has a function. Also no marks like the teapot. This one has two chipped tips on the condiment lid but otherwise in nice shape and clean inside like it was just for show. Fine porcelain like the teapot. Help!
