Boxed set of four silver salts with spoons

A pretty boxed set of four Edwardian silver salts with crimped edges, on four ball feet. Two salts have their original gilt interiors, two do not (probably only two have ever been used). There are four matching silver spoons. The set is hallmarked for Sheffield 1903 and 1904, and has the makers mark for Cooper Brothers and sons. The set comes in its original faux leather covered box which is padded and lined with purple velvet, more purple than the photos show. The only damage is the rubbing of the gilding to the interior of two of the salts, some wear to the outside of the display box, and the elastic which held the spoons in place in the box has perished.
