A 19th century Tunbridge Ware nutmeg grater in the shape of an egg. The nutmeg grater has a parquetry inlaid decoration on the lid. The top unscrews to reveal the original grater which rests on top of the base. There is some losses to the interior threaded section but the lid still screws closed. Very tactile item.
It measures 4.6cm l x 3cm w.
