PLEASE SCROLL DOWN FOR PHOTOS This is an 18th/19th centurysilvernutmeg grater of barrel form with gilt interior. It has obviously been used as a nutmeg grater in the past as you can smell and see traces of nutmeg.The top fixes on between two slits (bit like a UK lightbulb fitting). It is exquisite and invery goodcondition, the only thing to report is slight loss of 3mm to the raised ridge around the top which can be seen in the photos. No dings, no repairs.I think it may be of Middle Eastern origin, perhaps Persian?2.1 inches tall and 1.8 inches at widest point (5.3cm x 4.5cm). It weighs 60g. Acid tests as silver.
