This simple and elegant reproduction pewter salt trencher was reproduced from an antique in the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation collections. Spices were costly in the 18th century and spice accessories like this would convey the status of its owner. Pewter would have been owned by the gentry, or possibly an aristocrat or lord - although it was more likely the highest in society would have sterling silver. The spices also showed the sophisticated palate of the owner in terms of food that was eaten.
Crafted of fine, no-lead, non-tarnishing pewter, this salt trencher makes a great gift for the chef, the foodie, or anyone who just likes interesting things.

I bought two of these little open salts, one for salt and one for pepper. They are a very attractive addition to a period dining table. Lucky I already had appropriate pewter salt spoons, but I wish Williamsburg offered the little spoons as well.
