Georgian Pewter Table Salt
From the seventeenth century onwards, there was scarcely a household in Britain that did not possess some items of pewter: plates, bowls, tankards, spoons, candlesticks were just some of the everyday items made from pewter.
This small pewter salt dish was made at the end of the 18th century, though robust peweter items would have been passed down generations used through out the following century. Pewter remain a popular material and products changed little in design right through to the 1930s. It would have been in place in a good country house or cottage.
