Set of four silver salts with blue glass liners

Isacq Samuel Busard, The Hague, 1770

347 grams in total, excluding blue glass liners

6,5 cm diameter, 4 cm high

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).
