Post by jelayemprins »

Anyone come across an extant salt planer or similar?
Ivory seems to be mentioned but I can't place one.

I've only seen this description which I'm sure you already know about:
Have your salt white, and your salt-planer of ivory, two inches broad, three long.

Yep Sally that's the one!

I wondered if anyone had seen a survivor in museumland? Musee de Cluny for instance?

I'll keep looking!
