Original, not a reproduction.

This is a very old kitchen salt box in vibrant white and red with the word "Sel" enameled on the front. There is a gold decorative fillet border on the lid as well as on either side of the red bands. St. Servais is known for its high quality and fine construction.
It is in excellent condition with only minor rusting and a few chips, which have been sealed with museum-quality wax, the same used in preservation by the British Museum in London. Hard to find, this beautiful salt box is highly collectible and will make the perfect holiday gift.

About French Enameled Ware: "Every piece, for those who can see it, has a fascinating little detail. It can be the shape or the decoration, the color of a flower, a butterfly, a bird trying to catch a bee, a landscape in winter, a sunrise, or simply the elegant curve of a handle or spout that makes it so unique. This unlimited variety of style and design makes French enameled ware so incredibly alive and charming that even people who have not seen it before have to stop and admire it. ... What makes it so special and attractive is the use of colors and wonderful designs, so close to nature or so abstract (depending on the peiod), but always striving for esthetic and artistic perfection." from French Enameled Ware for the Collector
