Vintage Salt and Pepper Shakers: Friday's Find #210


TGITF Friends! This week's fabulous find is a fun assortment of vintage salt and pepper shakers I scored at a church rummage sale. The first set is unlike any I've seen before. It's actually one piece. The set featuring a dog with its house is designed in a way that only one of the shakers dispenses at a time.

I remember being enthralled by my grandmother's small salt and pepper collection but I don't recall her having a double sided set like this one. Have you ever seen one?  At first, I thought maybe a previous owner had glued the two shakers together, but I didn't find any signs of that being the case. It is one piece with separate corks on the bottoms for refilling the salt and pepper. It was made in Japan. Available

Next a vintage set from New Orleans, Louisiana that's right at home with the other state souvenirs in my Etsy shop.

To tell you the truth, I might have passed on this tupperware, had I not previously sold a similar set within hours of listing it. This large clear set is part of Tupperware's Millionaire series from the 50s.  Available

  1. That salt shaker looks like it could chew the bones in a chicken leg and ask for more. My grandma had a similar pair, but I don't remembering it having such a mean and scary face! Some one will love it, though!

  3. Salt and pepper shaker sets are so much fun, aren't they? I've never seen one like the dog and doghouse. Very unique!

  4. That Tupperware S&P triggered memories. My mother would give us kids X amount of sugar in those tiny cups for us to use when eating raw rhubarb; can you feel your mouth puckering up? When it was gone, it was gone! I try not to collect S&Ps but figurine ones (dollhoused size!) often follow me home! I have a friend with over 500 sets; dunno how she keeps track!

  5. Back in the 60's my mother had a set that looked like birds sitting on a log. There were about 6 birds and the log was just a long piece of round wood, like a dowel. They were the same color as the Mr. and Mrs. salt shakers and painted in the same style. I loved playing with them when I was little. I have never seen another set like it .

  7. S&Ps are one of my weaknesses. I love that they come in so many shapes, sizes, patterns, etc etc... from around the world!
