A bird in the hand......

Found in the bottom of a box some time ago, are these two charming bird salt & pepper shakers. Both the salt cellar and the pepper pot are made from wood and stamped Foreign on the bottom, they measure 85mm. The simple decoration on this condiment set reminds me of bar tool sets from the 1950s.

If youre interested in Salt & Pepper shakers Abbeville books produced a marvelous book, Great Shakes in 1986 by Gideon Bosker. Although now out of print, its well worth hunting down.
