Wooden Mt Vernon Souvenir Salt and Pepper Shakers Set Cute pair of colonial design turned wooden salt and pepper shakers with metal wire handles marked Mt Vernon, Va. (George Washington's home) The salt shaker is mostly light wood with brown and the pepper is mostly brown with light. I’m guessing it’s cedar. Excellent condition. Stoppers intact. Each one measures 2 1/4” tall by 1 ½” wide. Fun for your country farmhouse kitchen, rustic cabin decor or your salt and pepper collection.
