An unusual Regency antique treen nutmeg grater in the shape of a double lidded bowl with a side handle which has been replaced.. The lid has a printed label of a scene from Brighton see front with clouds in the sky. The lid unscrews to reveal the grater and the base unscrews for the storage of nutmegs. It is decorated to the sides with red and black painted lines and would have been made as a table nutmeg grater.
It was most probably made by the Wise's Tunbridge Ware Manufactory, in Tonbridge, Kent, England.
