George II salt cellar cast legs female masks London 1752 Edward Wood

A George II compressed circular salt with cast legs featuring female masks containing ribbons and flowers in their hair made in London in 1752 almost certainly by Edward Wood.

Price: £225.00

The legs on this salt are an unusual form similar to those on a pair of more decorated salts recorded by Edward Wood in 1747 (figure 13a of Hennell Silver Salt Cellars 1736 to 1876 by Percy Hennell [1986]). The book also illustrates a plainer pair (similar to this one except with a gadrooned border) made by Wood's apprentice David Hennell in 1755 (figure 13b) and David Hennell's son Robert in 1791 (figure 13c). Percy Hennell suggests that David Hennell had 'inherited or acquired the Edward Wood patterns, and that they were kept in the family. We know that Robert inherited his father's tools'. This salt, with crisper decoration than the the later examples and made the year that Wood died, would seem to add weight to this theory.
