c. 18th Century Colonial Period, Impressive Matching Pair of Decorative Treen Salt and Pepper Shakers in Wood, Choice Extremely Fine.
This very rare Paired Set of Salt & Pepper Shakers beautifully hand-crafted in wood with decorative turned devices. Most of the time you will only see shakers of this form crafted in metal. This pair is lathe-turned, standing about 5.5" tall. The bottom base on one has a fine internal split that has been conserved and not really visible displayed upon a shelf. A few additional scuffs in the finish for light use, otherwise in overall lovely condition. These gorgeously crafted matched wooden shakers are perfect for display in any Colonial period collection.
