A fantastic, as well as unique and rare, set consisting of a salt, pepper & spice shakers with holder, circa 1940's.

The holder measures 5 3/4" in length, 1 7/8" in height, 1 5/8" in width and is stamped with the Wilcox Sterling logo "WW over script S. woven through) and "Sterling - 16 1/2". The company was know as the Wilcox Silver Plate Company, founded by Jedediah & Horace Wilcox in 1865 in Meriden, CT. which later became a division of International Silver in 1898. They made primarily silver plate items, but did produce some sterling silver hollow-ware in the mid-20th century. The heavy cut crystal shakers measure 3" in height. There are no cracks, chips or repairs; wonderful original sterling patina.
