Tiny Oxhorn Salt Dish and Spoon Set by Abbeyhorn
Abbeyhorn celebrates British craftsmanship using raw materials, sourced ethically from renewable resources, often recycling a ’waste’ product from the meat industry and as a result preventing it from ending up in landfill.
These tiny salt dishes and spoons are carved from Oxhorn*, the natural characteristics of the material mean that each item has its own unique colouring and pattern (and as such will vary from those shown in the photo).
*Our domestic cattle, here in the UK, have been selectively bred so they no longer grow horns, this has been done to prevent the cattle from harming one another and consequently damaging the product they are reared for e.g. hide or meat. Abbeyhorn therefore uses horn from Ankole Cattle sourced as a by-product of the meat industry in Nigeria. With more space to roam their horns are left to grow, producing the very large, distinctive horns with both great length and circumference that are ideal for use in hornworking.
Please note that natural horn is not suitable for dishwashers and should always be washed by hand.
