The Nutmeg Grater is broad rectangular in form and the cover and base are beautifully engraved with two bands of Greek key designs surrounded by a prick dot ground and unusual bright cut stylised foliate motifs. The engraving is particularly beautiful on the base and is reminiscent of some of the work of the silk weavers in Spitalfields, particularly the foliate designs. The cover also displays a rectangular cartouche engraved with contemporary script initials. The hinge on the base is very well concealed, a hallmark of the excellent work of this partnership. The sides are engraved with unusual diamond motifs surrounded by chequered engraving and wavy prick dot borders. The interior is very well marked and displays the original steel grater.

Length: 1.6 inches, 4cm.
Width: 1.1 inches, 2.75cm.
