This silver salt cellar was one of over 60 owned by M. Carey Thomas, several of which were by 18th and 19th century London silversmiths such as Charles Robert Ashbee (1863-1942). The inventory of the Deanery performed in 1917 has over three pages dedicated to salt cellars in numerous shapes, including hearts, birds, flowers, cats, boats, and sea horses. Some of the salts were enameled with elaborate floral designs; this one has a globular body, scalloped edge, shell knees, and hoof feet.
