So original and delightful! This sterling salt cellar is from the Ukraine. Salt and bread are symbols of hospitality, prosperity and abundance. Sometimes they place the cellar inside the round wide ring shaped loaf as shown in the last picture.

The mouse is also a symbol of abundance in a way because no grain, no mice. In Japan the God Daikoku stands on rice barrels with mice playing about. Again, you will see the recurring them of mice, grain, prodigious harvest and prosperity!

The little mouse here holds a blade of wheat (perhaps rye or barley) and there's an appealing salt spoon with a blossom on the bottom of the bowl and the handle mirrors the grain theme. It is quite substantial weighing 286 grams just for only the silver weight of the three pieces. It's hallmarked and stands 3.5 inches high.

The glass is in excellent condition with only a tiny flake the width of a ladies pinkie nail, on the edge. It is hard to find unless you use your finger and feel the edge of the rim.

Overall, the irresistible mouse theme, the uniqueness and completeness of this engaging trio ( cellar, spoon and liner) make it a pleasing find. It would be a perfect gift or addition to your own collection.
