Pair of Victorian sterling silver salt & pepper shakers. Made by Stokes & Ireland in Birmingham in 1889. Each: A pierced globe is supported by a chubby, contrapposto cherub with wispy drapery and bare bottom, who strains under the weight (of the world?). Sweet and sentimental Classicism with allegorical possibilities. Figure stands on stepped and round foot mounted to square base. Fully marked. Very good condition.

Dimensions: H 3 1/4 x D 1 1/4 in. Total weight: 2 troy ounces. #BU117
