The exterior surface of the box and cover are embellished with bands of alternating plain and chased scrolling leaf decoration. The cover and base of the nutmeg grater each incorporate a plain thumbpiece. The hinged cover opens to allow access to the silver mounted steel grating grille.This antique nutmeg grater is a very good gauge of silver, fine quality and in excellent presentation condition, with some extremely small roughness on one rib. There is a very minor pin point hole to the date letter on the inner rim, this does not detract from the aesthetic appearance. The chased decoration is very sharp. Full hallmarks struck to the surface of the sleeve and part hallmarks to the interior of the cover and also to the grate.
