An antique English Hicks, Meigh & Johnson blue transfer-ware plate decorated to the centre with the armorial crest for the Worshipful Company of Salters. The Worshipful Company of Salters is one of the Livery Companies of the City of London, 9th in order of precedence. The Company originated as the Guild of Corpus Christi, which was granted a Royal Charter of incorporation in 1394. Further Charters granted the Company the authority to set standards and regulations regarding the products of its members.
Originally, the Salters' Company included individuals whose trades involved the usage of salts and the preparation of chemical mixtures for use in food. As with many other livery companies, the Salters' Company has lost its direct connection to its original trade. Currently, however, the company supports the chemical industry and supports education in chemistry, for example by awarding scholarships to chemistry students.
Furthermore, it is a charitable organization. The Company's motto is Sal Sapit Omnia, Latin for Salt Savours All. "DU Croz" "Skinner Street London" Together with pictorial mark incorporating a lion and unicorn.
