Silver Nutmeg Graters Paperback (May 1, 2002) by John D. Davis
This charming catalogue features a stunning assortment of fashionable
English graters from seventeenth century London and eighteenth and
nineteenth century Birmingham, handsome twentieth century American
graters designed by Gorham and Tiffany & Co., and more. Highlights
include a circa-1680 grater in the shape of lute; graters made of
mounted cowrie shells (1680-1720); and a commemorative grater with a
braid of hair encased in a glass top.
The English silver pocket nutmeg grater: A collection of fifty
examples from 1693 to 1816,
by Elizabeth B Miles
I keep thinking the graters are in a Dutch still life painting or two
that include spices.
