I am thinking of selling this sterling salt & pepper set, but I am having trouble determining a value. I can find other designs by the same person, but I have not been able to find this one. This is what I know about it:

Georg Jensen sterling silver salt & pepper shaker set
modern design

Measurements:
Diameter at base 1 1/4"
Height 3 1/4"
It tapers from round at the base to oval at top
Dimensions of top 1/2" x 5/8"

Salt shaker has 3 holes
Pepper shaker has multiple smaller holes

The plugs at the bottom are round, each with these markings:
Top half: GEORG JENSEN inside of an oval made up of dots, DENMARK, STERLING
Lower half: HK inside of an oval, 1102

Used condition (no scratches, dents, damage, etc.)
Some tarnish

Answer
Hi, Sue.

I don't really know the value of your set. There is a set from the same series (smaller) for sale on this page for $450: http://www.jensensilver.com/other/salts.html . I can't say if that's a realistic price. This page does give you information about dating and the designer. Maybe this will help place your set in a price ballpark.

Sorry  could not help more.

Best wishes,

Jim
