Large, ornate silver salt cellar with open top from the 1715 Fleet. 74.88 grams, 2" tall and 3-1/2" in diameter. Thin but amazingly well-preserved silver with embossed design all around the exterior showing various animals (deer, rabbit, snake, pheasant, mouse) in pointed-square panels (probably Asian design), with small spots of brown encrustation inside but otherwise very bright and frosty, too small for a serving bowl so believed to be for holding salt. From the "Cabin wreck" site, found on the beach in 1985, with photo-certificate from salvager Carl Lazzeri and Real Eight certificate signed by John Keshishian.
