An all-over gold encrusted design as seen on these shakers from Pickard and Stouffer's Decorating Studios was the height of elegance in the early 1900s. Each shaker is decorated with a nearly identical stippled gold design. Artists often decorated for more than one company, which may account for the similarity on these two shakers from competing turn-of-the-century companies.
These are being offered as found, as a set, as they have likely been paired for many years. The most noticeable difference is that the Stouffer's stippled design continues around the corners of the salt shaker, while the Pickard design is plain gold with no pattern on the corners. The Pickard shaker has smaller holes for pepper.
Each of the shakers measures about 3 inches tall, though the Pickard is just about 1/16 inch taller with a more rounded top. The design seems to be slightly deeper into the gold also, so perhaps there is a slightly thicker layer of gold on the Pickard shaker. Each shaker is 1-1/2 inches across the square bottom and 1 inch across the tops.
The shaker with smaller holes is marked with the Pickard circle backstamp in black "Hand Painted China, W A Pickard." This mark was used from 1918 to 1919. "Stouffer's" is stamped in black block letters on the second shaker. The " 's" was dropped from the Stouffer backstamp around this same time.
Each has some minor wear on the gold at the top and bottom edges. The Pickard shaker has the cork pushed up inside and tape (as found) over the hole. The Stouffer's is missing the cork and has the remnant of an old paper label on the bottom.
