    i have this little silver and enamel object, stands on three legs. Probably missing a lid?

    Not sure what it is or where its from, and the marks aren’t clear either. I think they say 510MMET IL4P35K

    3cm height, 5.5cm diameter

    Looks like a little Russian salt cellar. Like this one but missing its liner.

    Aquitaine Is What It IS! But NEVER BORED!

    Wondering if it should have had, at one time, a little glass insert?? Then, (HAHA... just got sniped!!!:happy:) maybe a little salt!!

    As already suggested, a salt missing its liner and spoon, made in Soviet Russia (the price is stamped at right, 4 rubles, 35 kopeks) - the 'ЮМ' indicating the 'Mstera Jewellers' factory, the 'МЕТ' indicating base metal rather than precious, typically silverplated nickel-silver, they are also found with gold plating (if I recall correctly, the '5' prefix indicates manufacture in 1965). The factory is still in business and still producing similar salts...

    That’s so cool to get all that information :) Precise even down to the price!
