Prussian Salt and Pepper Shaker Replica
Although known for their sometimes austere life style, the Prussian kings are also famous for fine dining, as can be seen from the duo of the salt and pepper shakers on the table.
The gems are containers for the two most important seasonings for many food - both feasts for the diner's eye.
At times of Frederick the Great, salt was often served in a Saliera, a salt barrel. In the middle ages, a sumptuously crafted vessel in the shape of a ship, the salt ship, was placed at the princely table. Yet, more and more the small shakers had gained their place instead of it.
The salt shaker and pepper comes with its delicate, silver plated case, with blue glass through which the light miraculously shines. Our replica are authentically representing those of that era, when these shakers were invented 120 years ago. They are a nostalgic ornament and also a gift that shows a good taste.
