Fabulous vintage matched set of BIRKS sterling in a classic design with gadrooned bases.

Marked to the underside of all pieces is "BIRKS STERLING". Cobalt glass to salts and mustard. Removable, domed and handled cover to mustard.

The pepperettes are ever so slightly different from one another. One has 2 rings to the the twist off cap, the other 3, and t is a slight difference in height. Having displayed them for years, this is the first time I've noticed!

The 3 spoons are all BIRKS sterling. The salt spoons are ornate with gold wash to the front and back of the bowl. The mustard spoon has a longer handle and is quite plain but also gold washed. This spoon is a replacement and has a monogram "M" to the back. It is the only monogram in the set.

Dimensions: (all approximate) Salts and mustard Diameter (base) 2", (top) 1 ½", Height 1 ½", mustard (top of lid) 2"; Spoons 2 ½"; Pepperettes Diameter (base) 1 ½", Height 2 ½". In excellent vintage condition.
