This sterling silver jewelry is made from reproduction salt spoons, small utensils from a time before table salt was free flowing as it is today. Since it was such a precious seasoning, only small portions were given to a person at the table. Salt was scooped out of an open dish known as a salt cellar, and sprinkled over food with the small spoons. Due to changes in processing of salt for consumer use, the open salt cellar and its accompanying salt spoon have become largely obsolete.
