Salt and Pepper Shakers

If you have ever been to an estate sale you will know that salt and pepper shakers are a big deal. Many people have enormous collections of these objects and it is amazing what forms they can take on!

We ourselves, are the proud owners of a few sets of shakers. One set in particular, found at an estate sale, is made of wood. The figurines are of an older couple. The woman wears a cape and a scarf and the old man wears a cloak and a hat. They rest on a base made of the same type of wood.

This set, we plan to keep, at least for now. They are always looking at each other and seem to be in a good mood. We believe they are quite unique and may have been hand carved somewhere in Peru. What do you think?
