ANTIQUE VICTORIAN DECORATIVE SPELTER? SUGAR CRUSHERS

** PLEASE SCROLL DOWN AFTER THE DESCRIPTION TO SEE THE PHOTOGRAPHS OF THIS ITEM. IF YOU WANT TO SEE ANY FURTHER IMAGES PLEASE JUST ASK. **

This pair of antique sugar crushers date from around the mid-nineteenth century. We believe them to be made from some type of spelter, although we are not 100% sure of this. They are decorative and are in the shape of interwoven branches with acorn and foliage decoration. There are no maker's marks.

The crushers have an interesting history. In 1983 their owner wrote to Country Life magazine in an attempt to identify them on behalf of her husband. But before the letter was published the gentleman died, followed three weeks later by his wife. So the query and answers only appeared after the couple had died. Also included with the crushers are both the relevant issues of Country Life, the newspaper article covering the story and the various replied received in response to the original enquiry.

Condition: Overall in good condition with some wear consistent with age and use. The sugar crushers have some scuffing and wear to the finish and some areas of minor chipping and loss.

Please refer to photographs below.
