This beautiful pair of sterling Mount Fuji salt and pepper shakers are expertly crafted of 950 silver which is a slightly higher level of purity than traditional 925.
Both are embellished with brite-cut engraved designs of Japanese motifs; cherry blossoms, pagoda and birds. Combined they weigh 39 grams and each measures 3 1/2 inches in length across the base. The doors on the bottom open easily and have no salt corrosion which is sometimes an issue with vintage sterling shakers. There is one tiny ding on the side of one which is visible in the side photo. They are both clearly hallmarked "sterling 950" on the bottoms.

All have been lightly had polished to reveal the artistic details. If you like Japanese sterling figural shakers, I encourage you to check out others listed in this store.
