Salt or spice dish
Small salt or spice pinch dishes and spoons hand cut, formed, and polished in Carnforth, at the last remaining horn-works in Britain. The colours range from white, to translucent amber, through all the shades to black in natural tortoise-shell variations. Horn will not tarnish or taint food stuffs, hence its traditional use in the serving of salts, eggs, acidic and preserved foods which would quickly discolour old silver or carbon steel implements, and characteristics which are still useful today when serving such condiments. Sold singly and separately the spoons are a little under 7cm long, whilst the bowls have a diameter of about 57mm.
