S is for Salt Box

Salt boxes... around for centuries in England, Germany and France.  The traditional ones hold one pound (.45 kg) of salt and were designed to be hung on a wall in close proximity to the stove.   Not only was this convenient for the cook but beneficial, as the dry heat prevented the salt from clumping. 
Salt Boxes - vintage items of practicality and beauty!
