Cow Horn Salt Cellar
Made with ethically sourced cow horn, this polished cellar and spoon set display table salt or spices in the loveliest way. Use on the dinner table for sprinkling salt on finished dishes, or use in the kitchen while cooking. The cellar is accompanied by a complimentary small horn spoon, the perfect size for scooping and serving. Valued for both its hardness and its ability to become soft and pliable when heated, Ankole cattle horn has been used by East Africans for centuries. The cellar and spoon were cut by hand, shaped and molded at high temperatures, meticulously sanded, and then polished for a smooth and shiny finish.
Due to the considerable size of Ankole horns and their wide range of naturally occurring colors, this cellar and spoon set is truly one-of-a-kind; no two are exactly alike. Ankole cow horn is indigenous to East Africa, making this material extremely rare.
Each cellar and spoon set is individually crafted from start to finish by an artisan in a fair trade environment in Uganda. Imperfections are expected and contribute to the uniqueness of your handmade good.
CARE: Because this cellar and spoon set is made of pure horn, which is made up of keratin protein, there are special considerations for their proper care. It should be cleaned after use using only lukewarm water. It should never be left soaking or placed in a dishwasher, but rather should be dried immediately using a soft cloth. If immersed in water for too long, it could potentially give off a natural sulphur smell, which should dissipate once it is dry and over time with use. It is important to avoid leaving your horn items near heat sources or in direct sunlight, as warm temperatures can cause the horn to dry out or change shape.
