Winsford Salt Lump
inscription: Model of
salt lump as made at Winsford, Cheshire
notes: This model is identical
in shape to the Cheshire Salt Block. It is found both glazed and unglazed, and
also in the form of a salt shaker (i.e. with small holes in the top for the
salt to come out of). In this last form it also bears the word "Salt" in
Gothic script above the coat of arms. All three forms carry a coat of arms,
which is invariably the matching arms.
