A perfect gift for an outdoorsman or a hunting enthusiast, these salt and pepper shakers feature two handcrafted pewter figurines of two wild antelopes. Each whimsical figurine is cast in lead-free pewter, and plated in nickel silver color.
The shakers come with glass containers set in a convenient decorative tray (included).
To create each piece, the artist makes a polymer clay form and carves it to the desirable look. The form is then baked in the oven to harden, and a black rubber 'negative' mold is formed. The rubber mold is then filled with hot lead-free pewter in a centrifugal machine that spins while the pouring occurs. The resulting metal figurine is electro-plated to give it a nickel silver finish. The finish does not tarnish and gives the figurines a beautiful rich luster.
*Please note that due to the handcrafted nature of production, some variations in the final look and shape of each piece can be expected.
