These sterling silver, 9ct gold and diamond set Salt & Pepper shakers are from a collection of tableware designed to change our attitudes towards the standard dinner set, table landscape, and way in which we dine. The pieces within the collection appear very simple but have a huge amount of design research gone into both their design and manufacture. The salt and pepper shakers pay homage to Benvenuto Cellini’s gold salt cellar. The contrast in design not only illustrates how times have changed through design aesthetics, but also the worth and perception of materials too. Cellini’s Salt cellar mainly comprised of a solid gold enamelled sculptured scene with a small bowl at its centre to hold the salt. Historically salt has been a rare commodity, and the reason why we use the word salary is because the Roman soldiers use to receive part payment for their duties in salt – which in Latin derives from the word ‘Sal’ (Hence the word salary).
By having stones set into each of them, an element of preciousness, and a sense of belonging is introduced into each piece, creating the relationship that bonds the various pieces together to form the collection… Jewels for the Table.
