Lusterware Salt Cellars, Salt Dips, Orange and Blue, Set of 5, Made in Japan, Footed, Collectible, Small Individual

A charming set of 5 footed lusterware salt cellars. They are marked Made In Japan. These are orange (peach) on the outside and blue on the inside with black trim around the edge. The title salt cellar comes from the 15th century and it combines the English word salt with the Anglo-Norman word saler so thus"salt-cellar". Salt cellars are known by assorted names including open salt, salt dip, standing salt, master salt, and salt dish. Soon after salt cellars lost their role at the table, by being replaced by the salt shaker, salt cellars became a popular collectible.

A salt cellar is an article of tableware for holding and dispensing salt. Salt cellars can be either lidded or open and are found in a wide range of sizes, from large shared vessels to small individual dishes. Styles can be simple, ornate, aor whimsical. They were made by using a variety of materials including glass and ceramic, metals, ivory, and wood, and plastic.

Each Cellar is:
1 inch in height
1 1/2 inches in diameter

The salt cellars are all in excellent condition. There are no chips, cracks, or crazing.

These are a perfect gift idea for the collector. They would also be an elegant addition to a dining table.
