    In keeping with the cat theme I thought I would post these salt and pepper shakers (and no, I do not own a cat! allergies :(

    These are possibly pewter, no silver marks found, just the 781 number. Both of their heads unscrew to put the salt and pepper in. The dog has glass eyes one of which comes loose from time to time. Any ideas about maker or country of origin would be welcome.

    Thanks for looking!

      Very nice wolcott !! The cat must be the pepper. ( Makes you sneeze ) : )

      Hi Lundy,Do you think they are silver? I'm not certain that mine are pewter.

      Hi Hedge, When I was polishing it earlier I noticed that there were reminents of pepper inside the dog! The cat is a salty sort I think. Thanks!!

      Ooops, I just read on a few sites that you should not polish pewter, especially with silver polish. It didn't seem to affect the surface except it's shinier. Still not sure if it's pewter...

      Thanks packratplace, Scandi, Lisa and lostinspace!!

      Hi, I've just seen your post and I think you have some Meriden peppers.

      I collect pounce pots and they are often in the shape of pugs, owls and other animals. When I first came across these little peppers, I wondered if they were the same but I believe they are too small for pounce. They are lovely though so now I collect these too!

      Meriden made them in Britannia metal (a mixture like spelter) and also in silver. The advertisements I've seen date to the 1880s and they made a wide range. I've never seen the kitten with a ball of wool but the pug is definitely one of theirs.

      Hope this helps.

      Thanks for your input Spiko. Good to know! The pug looks exactly the same quite right.
