ANTIQUE SILVER SALT CELLARS

First documented in Ancient Rome, table containers for salt became hugely popular in England during the Elizabethan era. Salt was seen as a sign of purity, and it was also used widely to cover the taste of half rotten foods. Salt cellars from before the 18th century are rare, and most commonly they are found from the late 1700’s onwards. The most popular form is the ‘cauldron’, however early 1700’s ‘trencher’ examples are highly prized. From elaborate to plain designs, salt cellars are still as popular today as they have been throughout our history.
