The story

In a grand chateau, nestled in the heart of the French countryside, lived the Marquess of Bordeaux, a proud and accomplished member of the aristocracy. Among his prized possessions was a magnificent salt box, made of pewter and intricately chased with the image of two angels. The box was over a century old, passed down through generations of the Marquess’s family, and was considered a family heirloom of great value.The story says it was bought back from a trip in Germany. The Marquess was a lover of history and tradition, and the salt box was a symbol of his roots and cultural heritage. At every meal, the Marquess would proudly present the box, filled with the finest sea salt, to his guests, who would admire its beauty and history. The salt box was a true testament to the Marquess’s impeccable taste and regal background.
