‘Mr. Popple’

This pair of novelty Sterling silver salt and pepper pots are in the form of Edwardian motorists dressed in period attire. The design of this set harks back to a time in motoring history when drivers and passengers in their open-top cars wore specially tailored motoring outfits complete with caps and goggles.

The craze for special motoring garb was immortalized in popular media in the early 20th century, such as the number ‘The Motor Carnival‘ in ‘Mr Popple of Ippleton’, a musical comedy of 1906. Hallmarked London 1993.

Height of each: 3½ inches (9 cm)
