This vintage salt and pepper shaker set were a souvenir from Mexico. The ceramic salt shaker set has an orange and blue base decorated with pink and red flowers. One side reads, "Souvenir Of Mexico". The nodder bird shakers swing back and forth on their perches. The center of the base has a well with a lid for mustard. These bird salt and pepper shakers would be a perfect couples gift for a housewarming, anniversary or any other special occasion.
The base of the souvenir set measures approximately 5 inches long, 1 1/2 inch wide and stands 2 inches tall. The bird shakers look like parrots with brown beaks, green bodies, brown wings and a touch of red on their heads. The ceramic birds are marked "PATENT T T". One of the birds was broken at one time but was repaired. Glue remnants are visible at the base of the bird but are not visible when the bird is in the base. Each bird measures approximately 3 inches long from the bird's head to the bottom of the shaker. Both vintage shakers have corks in the bottom.
The mustard lid is a pale green which matches the base and has a little black floral decoration and a metallic gold handle.
