This piece illustrates the importance of looking high and low, on shelves and in display cases, when hunting at antique shows. I found this little salt among several other miniature items in a display case in a both run by one of my favorite dealers. The iridescence on the inside is downright luxurious. It's a small piece- about 4" long, 2" wide, and 1" tall. For such a small piece, it really packs a wallop. Cobalt Papillon outside, Silver iridescence inside, fire polished rim, ground and polished pontil. Thanks to Dave for helping me find the line drawing!
Made for Ludwig Fränkel, Berlin, 1905.
