Manufacturer: English Silver

2.5cm x 10cm x 8cm Very rare 17th century combination salt & wine taster in quatrefoil shape. Appears to be both solid silver & plated. Inscribed on the wine side in old English, "12 of theise the Guift of James Heames twice Warden 1662." (December 1662)? On the salt side, James Heames, his Gift. Heames appears to have been a wealthy English official in a artisans group started in the 15th century to the 19th century. There is plenty on this guy on the net, do your homework. The following gleaned off the internet;
The Painter-Stainers' Company.

This is the only piece of Commonwealth plate the
Company possesses. It is a rare specimen, and is in
excellent preservation.

Twelve small salts or wine cups of quatrefoil shape
with a small oval receptacle for the condiment.
These were presented in 1662, and each is inscribed,
"The gift of James Heames, 2nd Warden." They
were probably made in 1661, the first year of Charles
II ; the maker's mark is quite clear. The arms of
the Company are engraved on the outside of eleven
of the salts, and on the inside of one : the reason of
this I cannot divine.
