These truly unique salt and pepper shakers include handcrafted figurines of a chicken and her eggs cooking in a pan. Every piece is lovingly handcrafted in clay, cast in lead-free pewter, and then plated in silver or 24-K gold color. These salt and pepper shakers make a unique gift for housewarming or a wedding.
The shakers come with glass containers set in a convenient decorative carrier (included). Please select between a tray (images 1-3) or a basket with a handle (image 4). Other set combinations are available - please see the selection below.
Silver-colored finish is available for a special order. Allow 2-4 weeks for special orders.
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 silver-like or 24-K gold 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.
