About

Established in Venice in 1846, Missiaglia is one of the world's premier makers of the finest jewelry objects, as well as a select number of bespoke sterling silver tabletop accessories. This handcrafted puffer salt Shaker and pepper mill showcase the skill and impeccable craftsmanship of Missiaglia's artisans. Each puffer fish features a hand-hammered dappled skein with an abundance of protruding conical spikes, as well as striated dorsal, tail and pectoral fins. Their whimsically refined faces offer stylized eyes consisting of concentric circular forms with a concave depression at centre, and an ovoid mouth with protuberant lips. The larger vessel holds pepper- artfully concealed within the body of the piece- which is ground by rotating the tail fin. The salt Shaker has an abundance of holes adorning the forehead of the smaller puffer fish. With their fastidious attention to detail and first-rate craftsmanship, these pieces are not only perfectly functional salt and pepper shakers, but objet d'art in their own right, that promise to beautify any dining table or surface that they grace. Quite simply, these are the finest tabletop products that money can buy. These salt and pepper shakers would surely have been the choice of the Medicis. Mint condition. Signed "Missiaglia 926" on bottom. They have a combined weight of 2.5 pounds of sterling silver. Italy, 21st century Dimensions: Salt shaker: 5" W x 3.5" D x 3.25" H Pepper shaker: 6.5"W x 4.5" W x 5" H.
