Swan & Rooster Silver and Crystal Salt & Pepper Shakers
This is a unique antique set of salt and peppers shakers, circa 1920. The salter, actually a salt cellar, is a delicate swan whose wings, neck and head are finely detailed silver over a crystal body. Her wings open and close. The pepper shaker is a crowing rooster whose neck, head, wings and feet are finely detailed silver over a crystal body. While there are a few similar swans in antique auction houses and store, i have not seen a complete set. This set is from my Grandmother Bellotti's (Nanny) home. Nanny, born in 1892 was married in 1908, and "went home"--as she put it--in 1987. This set had been in her home at least since 1925. Price includes shipping.
