Antique Salt and Pepper Shakers
jeannietan

I found the perfect size shadow boxes at Ikea to display my collection of antique salt and pepper shakers.

The boxes are uniformed in size and so, if I were to find a shaker that is bigger than the size of the box, I'd have to either pass on adding it to my collection, or find a bigger box.

The box is relatively inexpensive, costing about $6- each. I can either hang them up on the wall, or display them on a shelf.:D

Cute display idea, Jeannie.

Please lighten up on Jack - he's one of our most helpful, knowledgeable, and polite folks... and we have many like him here.
I got his humor and laughed at him. :-D

I have a pair of salt and pepper shakers that are somewhat similar to the pics submitted by Ivthytigersand was wondering about the history of mine. They have the words SPCO - the P overlays the S and the O is inside the C.Also the marking La France Reg 375.Any information regarding these would be most appreciated.I will post a a picture soon.Unless they are marked "Sterling" or " 925" they are silver plated. Country of origin markings such as "Made in Usa" were not used until the 1920's as a general rule.As far as value goes these often sell for less than $20.00.
