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.
