This fabulous GEORGIAN SILVER NUTMEG GRATER was made by Samuel Meriton II in 1792.

Made in era where Nutmegs were still a very expensive commodity (and probably worth more than the silver grater at the time !) , this beautiful Silver Nutmeg Grater is in the form of an egg. The Nutmeg Grater is made in two halves which unscrew to reveal the actual grater and the nutmeg can be stored in one of the halves.

Despite being over 225 years old, this stunning Silver Nutmeg Grater has no marks, scratches or dents and appears not have ever been used.

A superb collectors’ piece in almost mint condition and it comes complete with a nutmeg – unfortunately this isn’t worth what it was in 1792 !!
