The Nutmeg Grater is of the tubular form and is plain in design. The oval reeded hinged cover opens up so that the steel grater may be exposed. The nutmeg could then be kept safe inside the tube. This example is unusually small and may be a rare child's grater. It is marked with the crisp maker's mark of the famous box makers, Phipps & Robinson.

Length: 1.5 inches, 3.75cm.
Width: 1 inch, 2.5cm.
