A rare and wonderful pair of salt and pepper shakers c1930s.

The whimsical shakers are a unusual combination of sterling silver and bakelite.

The 'eggs' are a subtle end of the day butterscotch bakelite and the cracked egg shells are a lighter shade that is solid in color.

The eggs sit in elegant sterling cups embellished with a subtle rim of an embossed design, the eggs unscrew for filling.

The shakers are 2&3/8" tall by 1.25" across the center. The eggs alone are 1.25" tall, the cups are 1" with a base of 1.25" in diameter and an opening os 1&3/8".

Very well made and in excellent, clean condition, no damage or visible wear. A bit of tarnish on the sterling base, no dings or dents. The color of the egg shells are creamed corn in color. The eggs aren't laminated so I assume the color change is from age and being encased in silver.

The eggs tested positive for bakelite, the unmarked silver bases tested sterling with acid.

A fabulous and very unique set of shakers from the Art Deco period.
