Assembled Set of Measures 

Franco-Flemish, 1550-1600

A well assembled set, all with rounded bottoms and vertical casting seams. The smallest has the most dings, the mid-sized has a casting fault plugged at the forge, and the three look really good together. The handles have individual differences, but it would take a long time to assemble a set as well matched as these.

Small Pedestal Salt 

English, early 18th c.

These small pedestal salts are more often found in pewter or silver. But here's a nice little one in brass with attractively soft wear and patina.

Pastry Jigger 

Italian, late 16th c.

An exceptionally early pastry jigger whose form has hardly changed in 300+ years. Scimitar-shaped blade for trimming, wheel for decorating and a rooster's crest just to give it a boost -- hence the collectors' name "Coq" for this design.

$335

Pricket Stick 

South German, 16th c.

An impressive stick. Crisp turnings on stem, turnings on base and cup echo each other. Iron spike and bed riveted to brass cup with copper rivets. The iron brings a visual interest that is lacking in the more usual all-brass sticks.

$1,400
