A Georgian coquilla nut carved nutmeg grater in the shape of an acorn. The top unscrews to reveal the grater which in turn unscrews for storage of nutmegs.
These nutmeg graters were often carried around in a pocket and produced to grate fresh nutmeg into mulled wine.
It measures approx 7cm l x 4.5cm w ( at the widest point)
