Favourite Item
A brass caster similar to a form shown in Randle Holme's Academy of Armory to be for dispensing 'Pepper.....a well-known spice of aromatic odour and an extremely pungent aromatic taste'. However, the holes and overall size of this caster are too large for a spice and this is therefore most likely a flour dredger, more often fashioned with straight sides and a loop handle.

English, probably Birmingham, circa 1750.

5.5 inches high.
