Lovely Set of Antique French Silver Salt Cellars by Maitre Orfèvre Robert LINZELER.
These 4 lovely Antique French Silver open salt cellars are decorated in a style imitating the Louis XIV Style, in solid silver with a very light Seashell decor on each end.
The side of the cellars are decorated with scrolls. They rest on 4 antique pillar style feet.
The simplicity of the decor is balanced by the excellence of the work and the perfect beauty of the pieces, which was Robert LINZELER’s trademark.
The set is in perfect condition! No marks no dents, just gorgeous solid silver.
