Record Type: concept
salt casters (casters (vessels), condiment vessels, ... Furnishings and Equipment (hierarchy name))

 

Note: Casters intended primarily for sprinkling table salt, particularly in historical and formal usage. Salt casters are usually of baluster or cylindrical shape, often of silver or other precious material, and have a pierced domed cover which was sometimes screwed to the container. They were often part of a set of casters, set on a tray at table, although caster sets often included saltcellars rather than casters. For similar items used to sprinkle salt, but forming one of a set of only two with a pepper shaker, particularly when made of more modest materials and intended for daily use in a household or restaurant, use "saltshakers," although usage overlaps.
 
Terms:
salt casters (preferred,C,U,English-P,D,U,PN)
salt caster (C,U,English,AD,U,SN)
salt-casters (C,U,English,UF,U,N)
