A pair of vintage wooden Salty and Peppy shakers, circa 1950s, is available for your consideration. These hand-painted salt and pepper cat shakers have movable eyes and an inside squeaker. When the salt or pepper shaker is turned over and shaken, the squeaker would make a “noise” or a squeak! Since these squeakers were known to not work very well, they became known as the never-to-squeak squeakers. These shakers do not disappoint! They do not squeak!
The shakers have raised areas of paint to create a unique line design. These areas have a number of chips which seems to be expected with this raised design.
After unscrewing and removing the heads of the wooden shakers, it appears that the shakers may never have been filled with salt or pepper. “Squeaky” clean!
A picture of these Salty and Peppy shakers is featured on page 114 of “The Collector’s Encyclopedia of Salt & Pepper Shakers Figural and Novelty” by Melva Davern.
