The salts are engraved with an unidentified coat-of-arms. The silversmith must have been familiar with English and French designs of salts. A salt made in 1747 by him has similar features. He also could have been inspired by Pieter Kersbergen, a fellow guild member, who made a pair of salts in 1760 with similar feet. (cf. Haags Goud en Zilver, cat. nrs. 57 and 59).
